Guest Speaker – Wild Life Photographer Matt Zeitler.  Matt talked about what it takes to get a good wildlife photo and the equipment he used. Everyone was in awe of his photography skills knowing he had just started taking photos in 2009. His photos were exceptionally composed and in focus. Matt is out there every day and has captured so many species.  Some that are rare to this area and their return has been recorded by the Audubon Society because of Matt’s photos.
We are looking forward to having him come again.
