Photographer Erika Nadon captured an effusion of April flowers in Victoria’s Beacon Hill Park

Photographer Erika Nadon captured an effusion of April flowers in Victoria’s Beacon Hill Park, and submitted her winning photo for the May Ladysmith Camera Club contest, which was on the theme ‘Colour’.

The grey squirrel, which happened to be looking for a place to hide a chestnut, seemed a little bedazzled by the brilliant display (squirrels do see colours quite well, so this little critter would have been able to appreciate the scene, too).

Members of the Ladysmith Camera Club will next meet June 28, 7 p.m., when Thetis Island photographer and teacher Carol Sowerby will discuss ‘Thoughts on Composition.’

Camera Club meetings are in Hardwick Hall on High Street at 3rd Ave. Everyone is welcome, novice to pros. Non-members pay a $5 drop-in fee. More information on the Camera Club web site at
