Birds of a feather squawk together

The Ladysmith Camera Club’s members submitted shots on the theme “Opposites” in May. The winning image, “Open and Shut” by Saltair photographer Pat Haugen, was taken in late March this year at the Somenos marsh in Duncan.  “The photo took some patience but Pat knew she wanted to capture the interaction between the male tree swallow squawking and the female ignoring him,” said Brad Grigor, Media Liaison with the club.

The next meeting of the Ladysmith Camera Club will be on Tuesday, July 28 at 7 p.m. The presentation will be “Putting together a slide show” by Haugen. She will discuss using Pro Show software. The meet will be in Hardwick Hall, High Street at 3rd Avenue in Ladysmith. The camera club’s website is www.ladysmithcameraclub.com.
