The Port Mansfield field trip on May 13 meets at Hugh Ramsey Nature Park at 7:30 am.  Linda Butcher will lead this field trip and guide you to her favorite spots to photograph deer, birds and other subjects.  If you have not been to Port Mansfield in a while you will be excited to see the observation decks over shorelines and wetlands and long fishing piers.  Fred Stone Park offers close-up views of shorebirds making them easy to photograph and identify.  Linda will make sure you get opportunities to use the photography skills you learn from Anna at the May 11 Speaker Social.
