For our August activity, please join us at Santee Lakes for Dragonfly Photography with our president Steve Cirone. Dragonflies are active during the day – when we meet at 10 in the morning they’re still warming up and are a lot more static, that makes photographing them easier.

January 20th Activity: Ramona Hawk Watch

Photo by Steven Cirone

On January 20 we visit a Hawk Watch Event of the Wildlife Research Institute. The Hawk Watch is held every Saturday in January and February – you can go any Saturday, but our club will meet as a group on Saturday, January 20th.

This is a fantastic opportunity to get up close with beautiful birds even when you do not have a long telephoto lens – the birds sitting on perches or with their handlers will make it possible to get much, much closer than you normally would in the wild. Nevertheless, please be extremely respectful to both people and animals.
