Following his daughter through a lens as she discovers the natural world surrounding her, photographer Jesse Burke combines his two favorite things in this nature photo series.

The 'Wild & Precious' series takes us on a moving journey with a father and his daughter as they explore beautiful landscapes together. What makes this nature photo series unique is that it started as bonding exploration trips to the woods but quickly became a collaboration between the photographer and his daughter Clover.

With images showing Clover interacting with mother nature -- one of the images of her is under a waterfall -- the poignant series is sweet because we feel she's always being looked out for by her father from behind the camera.

"Traveling with a young child is often so eye-opening for me. It allows me to see the world in a less jaded way—in a pure and naive way, which is refreshing," says Burke.
