Please join us for our photo sharing meeting for November 2018.
Email submission closes 11pm, Monday 19th November 2018.
We have the opportunity to photograph nature up close. Frogs, toads, spiders, bugs, flora and fauna.
Dave Knox-Whitehead is allowing us access from his property, which will get us into the deepest part of Springside Nature Reserve, where the wet areas are. This is where we hope to find frogs to photograph.
We will be shooting in the morning, from 10am to about 12pm. The time will be confirmed closer to the outing. If it is sunny and hot, we will start earlier.
Please note - the walk down to the reserve from Dave's property is extremely steep. Once in the reserve, you will be required to climb over tree trunks and walk through grasslands. At the river area, the ground is muddy and slippery. Takkies are a must. Be prepared to get dirty.
* If you are not steady on your feet, or have health problems, please sit this outing out.*
