Maine is home to many talented wildlife photographers, and the images they capture are truly breathtaking. Whether professional or amateur hobbyists, these photographers offer a glimpse into the natural world that most people would never get the opportunity to see in their day-to-day lives.

We at the BDN would like to share some of those remarkable Maine wildlife photos and the stories behind them.

If you photograph wildlife in Maine — even if you don’t consider yourself to be a professional — consider submitting a photo and accompanying story for publication in the BDN.

We’re looking for wildlife photos with interesting, exciting or unusual stories tied to them. For example, maybe the animal you were photographing started acting in a way you didn’t expect. Or perhaps you as a photographer faced a multitude of challenges in the process of finding a certain animal or capturing one particular image.

Tell your stories and send your photos to Aislinn Sarnacki, BDN Act Out editor, at asarnacki@bangordailynews.com. Along with your photo and story, include your full name and your town of residence in the email.
