Most of the time Pioneer photographers Annalise Braught, Madelyn Haasken and Maggi Fellerman spend their time taking pictures at events, sports and other news-related Bemidji area happenings.

But whether out on assignment or just wandering around town with their cameras, they also enjoy looking for cute creatures and finding beauty in the ordinary. Here are a few of their favorite nature-themed images from June.
