TFN’s 2024 Nature Images Show

Nature enthusiasts and photographers gathered for TFN’s 2024 Nature Images Show, featuring the works of twelve talented individuals who shared their images of the natural world, taken around the GTA and Algonquin Park.

Some photos focused on the intricate details of flora and fauna, highlighting the delicate beauty of wildflowers, the graceful flight of birds, or the complexity of exoskeletons in insects. Others captured landscapes, highlighting some of Toronto’s favourite parks and ravines.

As in previous years, several entries were videos where the photos were accompanied by music to set the tone of the work. Those that used copyright-free music can be found on our YouTube channel in the Nature Images Show playlist.

New this year we also had Joanne Doucette showing us her artwork, including her meticulous colourization of photos from the early 1900’s.

There was an underlying message throughout the show on ethical nature photography and how to take great images without harming the subject by respecting the natural world around you.

A selection of photos from the show (those participants who didn’t submit videos) are shown below and more can be seen on our Instagram channel.

The Nature Images Show is held on the first Saturday in February each year.

Toronto Field Naturalists wishes to acknowledge this Land through which we walk. For thousands of years, the Land has been shared by the Wendat, the Haudenosaunee, and the Anishinaabe. Toronto is situated on the Land within the Toronto Purchase, Treaty 13, the traditional and treaty Lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. This territory is also part of the Dish with One Spoon Wampum, a covenant agreement between Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee, Wendat peoples and allied nations to peaceably share the land and all its resources. Today, the Land is home to peoples of numerous nations. We are all grateful to have the opportunity to continue to care for and share the beauty of this Land.
