A punctual group of members and friends amassed at Melbourne Zoo entry gate on Sunday 9th for our September Monthly Outing. It was a full day of conviviality, and of course some photography! Despite a somewhat overcast beginning and end the weather remained fine during the day.
It was great to see a range of newer and older members forming mixed groups. Most participants began the day with the primate loop followed by the tigers and elephant loop before morning tea.
Outings provide opportunities for newer and long term members to meet and talk. Across the day the groups remained mixed and provided opportunities for all to exchange of ideas and settings. Thanks to members who shared their expertise and special thanks go to Dave Sumner, our club wildlife photographer, who spent much of the day sharing his expertise amongst the newer members and visitors.
Following an outdoor lunch we viewed the 50 Greatest Wildlife Photography outdoor exhibition curated by National Geographic then continued photographing until around 4:30pm. Then a tired group of people straggled home to check their handy work.
Thanks to Ross Eddington for organising the outing!
