Nature journaling deepens the level of engagement with the natural world. Your eyes become tuned to the sway of grasses, slight subtleties in colors and lines in delicate feathers or the movement of camouflaged amphibian. It can be a magical experience and you may observe things you never thought were possible. Below is a drawing I did while trying to capture an oyster catcher – moving animals are quite the challenge, but good practice!
