We had a very nice turnout of members show up this morning for the annual wildflower walk and photo shoot at the Retzer Nature Center in Waukesha. This annual event is a field trip for the Retzer Nature Center Camera Club. Lighting was nice early this morning with light cloud cover and very little wind for the 2 hour event. I think the group walked away with some great shots as it is peak blooming time for many native species at the nature center. It was a fun event for everyone in sharing some of each others photography tips and ideas. Some images to share from the event today on July 19, 2016.

Thanks Jim. There are so many spenders of nature outside our four walls. Beautiful. I must take closer attention to some that I had not seen before.
This is incredible!
