 Our guest speaker will be Marie Read, presenting “Capturing the Spirit of 

    What does it take to create photographs that reveal the essential spirit of 
birds? For wildlife photographer Marie Read it means understanding and then 
capturing their behavior, and in this presentation she’ll show you how it’s 
     Marie will share the backstories to her compelling images of birds, many 
of which appear in her latest book Mastering Bird Photography: the Art, Craft 
and Technique of Photographing Birds and their Behavior, published by Rocky 
Nook earlier this year. Whether you’re a bird watcher or an experienced 
photographer, you'll gain a wealth of tips to help you improve your own images. 
You’ll learn that being observant, understanding birds’ body language, and 
taking your time contribute far more to getting great bird shots than having 
the newest camera and the biggest lens.
     Wildlife photographer and author Marie Read has forged a career out of 
capturing special moments in birds’ lives, creating images that combine beauty 
with impactful storytelling. Marie’s award-winning images have been featured 
nationally and internationally in magazines, books, and calendars.
     Her articles and photo essays about bird behavior and bird photography 
have appeared in Living Bird, Bird Watching, Nature’s Best, and Wild Planet, 
among others. She has authored or co-authored five books.
     Copies of Marie’s book will be available for sale after the meeting, cash 
or check only, please.

Hope to see you Wednesday!
