Bugs Galore for Eurobodalla Photographers

Insects were the topic of the night at the July meeting of the Eurobodalla Photographic club. Members were treated to an inspirational talk by fellow member Phil Warburton, entitled "The Secret Lives of Insects".

Phil's interest in entomology and photography has resulted in an exceptional portfolio of images, showcasing the insect life within the Eurobodalla, and North Queensland regions. Some of the most notable photographs include the rare and endangered carpenter bee, and a species of native wasps, not previously identified by entomologists. Phil pointed out that there are many species in the insect world yet to be discovered. Phil completed his presentation with a detailed explanation of his photographic technique.

For the first time after almost two years, our monthly competition was a print competition. Put on hold during the pandemic restrictions, members present judged entries in the open competition and critiqued a selection of images as a group.
