We enjoyed the company of Wildlife Photographer, Tom Way for a second visit.
He is based in Buckinghamshire and travels the world in search of perfect wildlife photographs which involves days and sometimes weeks of patience waiting for that ‘perfect shot’.
This may involve lurking in tall grass for hares, sitting in the river looking for voles or hiding up trees but the results are fantastic.
His last talk was mainly his exploits in Africa in search of big game with amazing close ups of lions, leopards, elephants and gorillas but this time he concentrated on UK wildlife with shots of red deer in Scotland and a plethora of wonderful bird close ups, including puffins, owls and birds of prey.
He also sells cards of his photos and amidst the oohs and ayahs from the audience at his cute array of animals, he was certainly a resounding success.
Memories of 2021…
On 5 July we were lucky enough to have our planned garden party in tribute to the NHS 73rd Birthday.
A fine buffet of sandwiches and home made cakes graced our table at the Outdoor Centre and a safe and sociable environment for our members was enjoyed. Our main NHS cake was kindly made by a member’s daughter.
Most of us had come through the last 18 months unscathed and hopes were high for a return to many more WI occasions. We hope all is well with other WIs and look forward to seeing the rest of our members soon.
