DELRAY BEACH — We've titled this feature "accidental photography" but there really isn't anything accidental about the pictures themselves.

What is accidental is the circumstances under which they were shot — the places and the times. They're illustrations of one of our favorite photographic maxims: "F8 and be there." Be where the action is, have your camera and have it ready to shoot.

The thing with nature photography, you don't always know where "there" is. When we hike a preserve or park, we never know what we'll see. We've come across black bear, gray fox, bobcats and a host of unusual or rare birds or butterflies. But in a sense, the unexpected is the expected. That's why we were there in the first place.
