Hello nature fans!

Ben Williams here, pictured here at Philpott Lake last summer shortly after I dove into some leaf litter in a failed attempt to catch a little brown skink (Scincilla lateralis). I just wanted to let you know that beginning today, #BenInNature is going to go on a brief winter hiatus.

Have no fear, however, because I'll be back in the spring to continue highlighting the wonderful critters that call Virginia home! In the meantime, I'm going to be working on an exciting new project that I think you're really going to enjoy. Take care, and I'll see you again soon!

Your pal,
