Hello, everybody. Today I'd like to share with you something about John Audubon. John was born on April 26th, 1785.

大家好,今天我想和大家分享一些有关约翰·奥杜邦的事情。约翰出生于1785年4月26日,
He spent much of his childhood in France where he spent many hours each day outdoors painting pictures.
他童年的大部分时间都是在法国度过的,在那儿他每天都会花很多时间在户外作画。
At the age of 18, he moved to the United States. Well, actually, John began his life in the US as a businessman.
18岁时,他移居到了美国。好吧,其实约翰起初是以商人的身份开始在美国生活的。
However, instead of taking care of his business, John was often off exploring nature.
然而,比起照看生意,约翰更经常做的是出去探索自然。
At first, John spent his time hunting for fun.

Therefore, he painted the birds he observed a lot.

In 1819, John realized that he didn't have enough money to pay his bills.
1819年,约翰意识到自己已经没有足够的钱来支付账单,
He was very upset that he couldn't earn enough money to support his family.
他因挣不到足够的钱养家糊口而非常难过,
So he spent time improving his painting skills and began to sell his paintings.
于是他开始花时间提高画技并开始卖画。
He discovered that he could earn some money while doing something he really enjoyed.
他发现他可以在做自己非常喜欢的事情的同时还能挣些钱。
We are lucky now to have so many paintings of American birds by John Audubon.
