A Time for Opportunities

Bill White
GNPA President

Spring is in the air, and you can find opportunities for great nature photographs everywhere.

I have a bird feeder in the backyard, which I use for a bird studio. I’ve been able to photograph cardinals, titmouses, wrens, bluebirds, woodpeckers and owls outside my door, and most people can do the same in their yards. Meanwhile, Gibbs Gardens is opening in early March (check their website), and you should not miss the Daffodil Colorfest this spring. At Berry College in Rome, the bald eagles are still nesting, but their the chick will fledge soon. So if you want to photograph the eagles, time is short. And diamorpha will soon be in bloom at Arabia Mountain.

Things are also happening at GNPA. The annual elections of the GNPA Board of Directors and officers will be conducted later this month. Watch for the ballot in your email, and don’t forget to vote.

Due to the unpredictability of Covid, the Programs Committee has been planning its events monthly for the rest of 2022. We’re hopeful that all of the local chapters will be meeting in person again soon.

Registration for the 2022 Annual Expo at Villas by the Sea on Jekyll Island is now open, and you can register at the members’ section of the GNPA website. This year’s Expo, which begins April 7, will include great speakers, programs, field trips and critiques, so be sure to check out the schedule and sign up right away. Jekyll itself offers many different kinds of nature photo opportunities, so it is well worth the trip. I hope to see you there.

As usual, GNPA plans to field a team in the North Georgia Shootout, scheduled for Saturday, April 30, 2022. This has been a fun event for GNPA teams in the past. Check out the website at https://northgeorgiacameraclubcouncil.org/ for more information.

See you in the field.

— Bill
