Nature Up Close: Shirley Jackson Photography collection

Shirley Jackson, a long time member, board member, hiker, and photographer, has just donated 151 photos of close-up nature photos for our archive. The Shirley Jackson Photography album is a unique collection of macro and zoomed-in photography, that includes over 100 photos of wildflowers and almost 50 photos of butterflies, other insects, birds, amphibians, and mammals.

Until recently, Shirley was a frequent participant on our hikes and she always took photos. Her contribution to the Waskahegan photography collection is immense and goes back to 2007, when we first started archiving our photos online. Her annual DVD compilations, “A Year in Hiking”, were also popular and are fun to watch at any time of year.

Since retiring from the working world, Shirley is spending more time on world travel. Nevertheless, she took time to curate a collection of her nature close-ups taken on the Waskahegan Trail, and to organize, research and label the photos. She has passed these photos on to us, and we put them on Flickr.

Thank you, Shirley, for your gift of the photo collection and for your donation of field guides for future hiking.

  1. Wow! What an awesome collection of flawless photos, and all identified and labeled for our convenience. So many times I have seen great photos of things and wished that they had been identified so that I might know what they were. We are so fortunate to have such a wonderful resource at our disposal to enable us to learn to identify some of the things that we see on our hikes. Thank you, Shirley, for allowing us to be beneficiaries of your awesome skills and talents.
