Caption: Ann and Rob Simpson are nature photographers and authors of numerous books mostly with a national park theme; Shenandoah, Great Smoky Mountain, Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Yosemite, Sequoia and Kings Canyon. Their background as professors in biology give their photography an in-depth quality. They have travelled extensively to photograph some of the earth's rarest animals, plants and habitats. Their photos have a sense of place including how we as humans fit into the environment. They regularly lead natural history photo tours to some of the most dramatic exciting exotic places on earth. Ann and Rob were the premiere pro photographers for Canon and the American Park Network's Photography in the Parks program. They travelled throughout Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon and the Great Smoky Mountain National Parks giving hands on photo field trips and an evening lecture on nature photography. Canon supplied equipment for the participants to use and each person got a CD of the images they took. The Simpson's also teach Nature and Wildlife Photography courses at Lord Fairfax Community College for the Careers Program Certificate in Outdoor and Nature Photography. The Simpson's use flash extensively and emphasize this in their classes. Their photography ranges from big telephoto wildlife to the most minute slime molds whose colorful intricate shapes can only be appreciated when blown up with a special 1x to 5x macro lens. They frequently use ultra wide angle lenses for scenic photography and teach students how to employ the hyperfocal distance for maximum depth of field.

Giant Victoria Lily or Amazon Lily, Victoria amazonica is found in oxbow lakes and bayous of the Amazon River and its tributaries. It is the national flower of Guyana. The fragrant flowers are white the first night they are open and start out as female flowers. The second night they become pink and change into male flowers. They are pollinated by scarab beetles. The sexual alteration helps prevent self pollination. On their third day the pollinated flowers sink to the river bottom to develop into a seed pod and produce seeds and when mature float to disperse the seeds. Apparently the spines on the underside of the leaves are a defense mechanism against Amazon manatees.
