As is becoming tradition, I wanted to review the last year and see what goals I was able to accomplish from my bucket list. Last year was quite amazing as I traveled to six different countries to spend almost all of 2014 abroad. This provided many opportunities to have some very unique experiences.
I am including only the highlights from this year in this post (for the full list just click the link above). I am also only showing one or two images of each species/location, if you want to see all the pictures from that subject just click that name and the link will take you to the appropriate gallery.

Tropical Rainforests (Adding to last years jungle adventures was a four week trip in June to Uganda)
African Golden Cat (June 2014) – More on that later
Scottish Wildcat (September 2014) – More on that later
3 species of Civet (Completed this goal with getting a picture of an African Civet in June, 2014)
This year I added “All 3 Puffin Species” and I have one species of the three after photographing the Atlantic Puffins on Skomer Island:
1000 bird species in the wild (I am at 234, having added 44 species this year), just a few here:
300 mammal species in the wild (I am at 107, having added 10 species this year), just a few here:
20 critically endangered and 50 endangered species (I am at 6 and 22 respectively)
Another great year, which always gives me enthusiasm for making next year even better!
How about you, anything particular that you photographed in 2014 that you are really happy/proud of?
