Program: No Walking, let the birds come to you
Longtime club member Dr. Alice Le Duc came to our club knowing more than any of us about plants and horticulture. She has shared that knowledge with us in meetings over the years, as well as hosting field trips to the Texas State Greenhouse. Since coming to San Marcos, Alice developed a passion for birding and bird photography. She has visited many Texas bird hotspots on numerous occasions, and has some great tips to share with you at our next meeting.
Member Photo Share: Theme this month is Skyscapes
“The sky may be the object of the photo (I maintain a folder named “Skyscapes”) but the sky might also be the background element that elevated a photo of another object or scene into your Favorites Collection. Other ideas: astrophotography, night skies, skyscrapers, a brewsky (remember Cheers? And I do know that’s not quite the correct spelling) , or vintage aircraft.” Bill Galloway
Please resize and rename your 2 images as follows: 1FirstName_LastName.jpg, 2FirstName_Last Name.jpg, and resize to 2000 pixels on the long side. NOTE: Send them by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 19th to insure they will be shown at the meeting.(Note: As always, if you prefer to submit something other than the theme topic, you may do so.)
