photograph

Monday 31st December 2018
Hummingbirds have always fascinated me and my dream to one day photograph them finally came true in November 2013.

This lecture gives you not only some lovely images of these little jewels, but some fascinating facts about some of the smallest birds in the world.

For camera clubs, I'll go into more detail on how to get photographs of such a tricky subject.
Besides the Hummingbirds, Trinidad & Tobago has some wonderfully colourful bird life and also plays host to some of the birds we watch in disbelief on the TV documentaries, like the Bell Bird, Oilbirds and Manikins.

This lecture has plenty of great images from Honeycreepers at the famous Asa Wright Centre in Trinidad, to the majestic Tropic Birds of Little Tobago island. If you have been thinking of visiting, this talk may just make up your mind to book your trip.
The lecture also includes film with sound of some species, so a very entertaining show.

This talk is to be held in the Osprey Suite, The Grant Arms Hotel, 25 The Square, Grantown on Spey, PH26 3HF.

8.30pm Start, non residential guests welcome.
