Even as Fall is approaching, we’ve got one more month of pure summer for this September edition of Challenge for Charity. I hope you’ll take a moment to have a little fun and take your chance to win a donation to your favorite nature/wildlife/conservation non-profit.

I am especially excited to present this first photo, taken by a new friend I met on a nature trail. We enjoyed easy and fun conversation, and have stayed in touch as we both have gone on to more nature trekking.
