3.  Outing – “Bug Exploration” – 28 Oct 2017

The outing this month has been POSTPONED to 28 October 2017

Due to the Canon Roadshow being held on the 21st October, we will hold the outing on the 28th 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.
