Audubon Photo Club exhibit in June

Photo submitted to Times Observer John Brustrom named this photograph “First Day” because he took it the day the fawn was born at Heritage Orchard Grove. He learned of the arrival while he and his Audubon Nature Photography Club Co-President Karen Christy were preparing for the Club’s exhibit there this month. The public is invited to a reception with the exhibitors on Wednesday, June 12, from 6 to 8 p.m.

Members of the Audubon Nature Photography Club will be sharing their work with residents of Heritage Orchard Grove during the month of June.

The public is invited to a reception with the photographers on Wednesday, June 12, from 6 to 8 p.m.

The photographs on display have asking prices or are marked as not for sale.

Other facilities or organizations are welcome to contact Club Co-President John Brustrom at about supplying photos for the exhibition.

Audubon Nature Photography Club meetings are held at 6:15 p.m. on the second Thursdays of the month at Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC), 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, N.Y., and Warren.

Natural and man-made framing and natural subjects are the topics for the image review at the meeting on June 13.

Since the July themes are water and reflections, there will be a video presentation on techniques for photographing waterfalls. If the weather is good, participants are encouraged to bring their cameras for photographing the flora and fauna around ACNC before and after the meeting.

A number of items will be discussed, and information about Audubon’s Nature Photography Contest that closes June 30 (see will be shared. A social time follows the meeting, and visitors are welcome.
