Hillcrest Camera Club - Outing - Springside Nature Reserve - Sun 29 Oct 2017 at 10am

Posted by Hillcrest Camera Club on Tuesday, October 31, 2017 Under: Outings

Hi everyone

The weather is looking promising for Sunday's outing to Springside Nature Reserve. 

1.  Outing – “Bug Exploration” – SUNDAY - 29 Oct 2017

The outing this month is SUNDAY 29th October 2017

Apologies for all the date changes.The final date agreed upon at the last meeting is SUNDAY 29th October. As an added benefit to waiting a month, according to Marlies, there will be a better chance of seeing insects if we wait a few weeks. 


Join us for an exploration for insects and plants of Springside Nature Reserve. Try your hand at macro photography, or if you don’t have a macro lens, you can do close up photography.

We will have Marlies Craig as our “Bug Explorer” guide. She will be showing us what to look for, and where to find the insects. She will also provide tips on how to shoot the bugs.  Please remember to bring R25 cash to pay Marlies.
