This is challenge number four in relation to DMD604 and DMD605. Understanding and having the knowledge of the wildlife habitat is just as important as any photographic technique and equipment. By understanding the habitat, you have a professional knowledge of knowing what animals, plants or insects you are going to find. The understanding of wildlife habitats, enables you to quickly recognise the type of area and what to expect, which is a quick way of preparing for any photographs. There are a large number of habitats, but knowing which one you are in is essential to photographing wildlife.
By photographing different habitats (although not all habitats that exist are included in these photographs), I am able to gain an understanding of what plants, insects, woodland and animal is in a particular area. By taking photographs of habitats, I am able to come back and try to identify each plant, animal, insect and woodland visually, which I find really helpful in understanding that habitats better.
