A SEASONAL JOURNEY THROUGH THE KLAMATH BASIN and BASIC NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY
This “talk” will feature 4 short presentations (of photography and music) that each highlight the birds and landscape of the Klamath Basin Wildlife Refuges through the four seasons of the year. A fifth presentation will be added to show the powerful beauty of the Great Gray Owl. Guidelines for photographing birds and other wildlife will be presented along with the ethics of bird photography. Mel Clements will discuss how to get the best photos and disturb the birds the least.
Mel Clements is an amateur photographer best known for his sightings and photos of the Great Gray Owl. He is also a Vietnam veteran. The DVD’s in the presentation were inspired by his desire to create an audio/visual journey into the natural world that would soothe veterans.
