July 2018 Photo Club Meeting – Birds of Mexico with Blake Shaw

You are invited to the July 19th, 2018 meeting of the San Diego Photo Club featuring Blake Shaw. Meeting location and details are unchanged and can be found here.

Main Presentation: Birds of Mexico (and Fish Tacos)

Blake Shaw has been photographing birds in Baja California for the past eight years. He will share his favorite spots for finding and photographing birds in Baja, from Ensenada to Cabo San Lucas, from sea level to 9,000 feet, from California Condors to Xantus’s Hummingbirds.

Learn what species can be found only in the Baja peninsula and the best places to find them.

Fish tacos are not served at the meeting, but you may want to go out for fish tacos afterwards!

Here’s an example of some of Blake’s photos that he will be sharing with us at the meeting:
