Went to a photography slide-show/lecture over the weekend with friend Grey of The Ditzy Druid. The event was led by husband and wife photography team Vici and Stephen Diehl, who are best known around these parts for their dragonfly and damselfly research and photography (they actually discovered a rare damselfly at TILT’s Zenda Farm Preserve). The slide-show was more about winter photography, and how taking your time outside and looking closer can produce some wonderful photographs.
I meant to get out later in the weekend and take some close-up winter shots of my own, but a couple of factors kept me inside (frigid temps and a suddenly dead computer being two of them). Oh well – I’ll get to it in the next couple of weeks instead! In the meantime, I dug up this great chickadee shot I took last year (above) during an impromptu chickadee photo shoot, and the shots below that caught my eye on flickr:

Vici and Stephen Diehl are part of the Indian River Lakes Conservancy (IRLC), which is another local land conservation group, and will be helping me with some of my KidsTreks with TILT this summer. In the future, I hope to add a nature photography trek for adults to the schedule!
