This fully booked event was again led by popular local naturalist and photographer, Crystal Ray. The morning began with an indoor session at the Milking Parlour Field Centre before we all ventured out into the rather windy and inclement conditions to see what wildlife and plants of interest we could find to try out our new-found skills on.
Some time was spent attempting to focus closely on a lone Scorpion Fly and most participants successfully photographed a very obliging Speckled Wood butterfly. Our walk took us as far as the dripping well, looking rather eerie and gloomy in the cloudy conditions, where comparisons were made between flash and non-flash photography.
All in all this proved an extremely enjoyable and informative event and I’m sure we shall be welcoming Crystal back again next year.
