Terri Chapman has been passionate about nature photography since the age of 16. While she has traveled extensively to photograph endangered species and magnificent landscapes, in spring 2010, she shifted her focus to capturing wildlife in urban communities. She has a particular fondness for birds and hopes that her images will inspire people to pay attention to — and appreciate — the everyday beauty of nature that surrounds them.
In her spare time, Terri raises monarch butterflies to support the dwindling population of this iconic species and advocates for people to plant milkweed in their gardens, which is the only food source of the monarch caterpillar. Terri has been an American Forests member since 2005.
