Then next January Mike Davis, an excellent bird photographer, will present a program on hummingbirds. That will be something to look forward to.

Newfoundland — Seabird Capital of North America, presented by Warren Capps and Tom Hausler. They discovered that Newfoundland offers a wide variety of photo opportunities, enough to satisfy any specialist. It’s home to 35 million seabirds, including 25,000 gannets, 500,000 puffins, and many others — too many to list.
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.
The topic this month is Aged to Perfection. What I mean by this is not just old, decaying, fallen-down subjects, but aged to perfection means it’s old but just as beautiful or even more so than when new. Think aged wine, aged cheese. You know, regal and has stood the test of time. Portraits of people, as well as objects are fine.
For the Photo Share, send one or two images to email@example.com by the end of Monday, November 14th, and put November Photo Share – Aged to Perfection 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.
