Photography Group August Meeting

Best Picture; Grey Wagtail by Pam Liberson Click the image to enlarge it

It was a very lively meeting on Monday 9th August to discuss 4 portfolios with the theme of Garden/Park birds. End of July/August is when adult birds go into moult and vanish, although a lot of juveniles were hammering the feeders in Whitchurch – not the best of themes then!. First the hot sun bleached the bird colours followed by dark days where shutter speeds of 1/2000 were not feasible without increasing the ISO to produce a grainy result. The overall quality of the pictures were very good to excellent.​

Best portfolio was by John Hawke and best individual photograph was of a Grey Wagtail by Pam Liberson. See all the pictures on the Group’s webpage

John Hawke gave a short presentation of a nature-themed tour of Costa Rica concentrating on the more colourful birds and other reptiles and animals.
