A few years ago, Howard Cheek didn't even own a camera. He wasn't a big gardener. But this year, he was The Nature Conservancy's 2008 photo winner for his photograph of a cardinal landing on a birdbath outside his window.
On our visit to Kempner with Howard and his wife Mary, you'll see how creating a certified wildlife backyard habitat changed their lives, and brought the talent up close. Howard shares a few of his photo tips for gardeners, including the secret for outstanding backgrounds.
