Wildflower Walk and Photo Shoot at the Retzer Nature Center in Waukesha Wisconsin on July 19, 2016

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.
