Jessica Decker photo
Jessica Decker
My name is Jessica Decker and I have lived in Elkhart all of my life. I grew up in a subdivision out in the country between Elkhart and Bristol. Growing up in the country gave me a love of nature and the outdoors. I have always loved being outside rather than inside. That is one thing that I have in common with my fiancé, Douglas Decker. Together we have six children – two are grown, and one daughter is in the Army. One of our favorite things to do is go on little adventures around our area and take a lot of pictures. I have been given an amazing opportunity to blog for our hometown newspaper The Elkhart Truth and share some of these pictures of the nature in our area that I love so much. I am very excited. I hope that everyone enjoys seeing my pictures, our little adventures and the beauty that I see in Elkhart.

Springtime comes to northern Indiana

Jessica Decker, our nature photography blogger, shared her photos of the first glimpses of spring. On this unseasonably snowy day, they're a great reminder of what spring is supposed to look like.

April has finally come and has brought our area some rain and beautiful weather. The spring flowers are starting to pop up, and the animals are flirting. I have been so excited to be able to get out more and take some pictures of the gorgeous nature in our area.

 Here is an in flight picture of the Eastern Bluebird after taking food to it's nest. I love motion pictures of birds.

 This isn't the type of fungus that I was looking for. I like to find the beauty in all of nature, and the different types and colors of some fungi, in my opinion, are so wonderfully beautiful.

 This Osprey has caught a fish, so exciting watching birds of prey hunt
