Default Wildlife Photo Tips forum?

How many members would be interested in a forum titled 'Wildlife Photo Tips'?

In keeping with our Mission Statement, it wouldn't be appropriate to discuss how to take photos of our pets, people, or vacations however discussions of how to photograph native flora and fauna, natural landscaping, as well as camera questions would be appropriate for such a forum.

Editing to amend the above to the following:
In keeping with our Mission Statement, it wouldn't be appropriate to discuss how to take photos of our pets, people, or vacations however discussions of how to photograph native flora and fauna, natural landscaping, and related camera questions are appropriate for such a forum.

I'd be a yes. I'm not too good at taking photos.

I love to read photo tips! Wildlife photography poses many more challenges because animals and birds aren't cooperative subjects, they move and lighting presents its own issues to overcome. You may also have the glare of snow or water to contend with.

Perhaps you can find professional wildlife photographers to offer monthly tips or articles. That would welcome indeed!

I'm far from being a Pro, but I will share the tips I have discovered throughout the last few years.

Thanks Dave! You certainly have wonderful photographs and must have experience in all kinds of conditions.

Sounds good to me and as you have seen, I posted some suggestions. The forum name is good and I like the criteria you listed with one minor suggestion. I would remove the statement, "as well as camera questions" or change it to say, "discussions of how to photograph native flora and fauna, natural landscaping, and related camera questions would be appropriate for such a forum."
