In October Patty Robertson will be presenting Wildlife Photography in Alaska, June 2023.
Tom Hausler and Warren Capps will team up in November to tell us about their trip to Newfoundland. Puffins!
Mike Davis, an excellent bird photographer, will present a program on hummingbirds next January.
Our next meeting will be Thursday, October 20th, 7 pm, at First Lutheran Church of San Marcos, 130 West Holland Street in San Marcos.

“Wildlife Photography in Alaska, June 2023” – presented by Patty Robertson. If you’ve seen any of Patty’s work online or at an exhibit, you know we’re in for some spectacular photography and story. You definitely won’t want to miss this!
You may send up to two images to share with the group. (You can send in any photos taken with any camera. It doesn’t have to be the monthly theme.) Tom Delaney has given us the following photo theme.
October Theme – The topic this month is piebald. Merriam-Webster defines this as 1) composed of incongruous parts or 2) of different colors, especially spotted or blotched with black and white. I don’t want to restrict this to black and white, so think spotty or dappled.
For the Photo Share, send one or two images to email@example.com by the end of Monday, October 17th, and put October Photo Share – piebald in the Subject line.
To prepare your images, we no longer have to resize our photos! Save them with the color space sRGB, and name them 1FirstName_LastName and 2FirstName_LastName. For example, 1Linda_Avitt.
