Animals in the Wild photography exhibition at Bodalla Gallery attracted good weekend numbers

David Shoebridge, Greens MLC said at the opening "these are some quite extraordinary images that show just how precious and threatened nature is. "We are extremely fortunate to have so many high quality entries, many from the South Coast, including one from Tess Poyner of Dalmeny (pictured) Together they show a very deep love of the natural world. The exhibition proves how much more powerful it is to shoot with a camera, not a gun."
