TOPIC:Wildlife Through the Seasons: A Journey Through the Lens of a Nature Photographer

At our next meeting, we will journey through the four seasons with noted photographer Lloyd Spitalnik. We’ll visit places like Central Park, Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, Jones Beach, Sterling Forest, Barnegat Lighthouse, Cape May, and many other locations in or near the New York metropolitan area. We will focus primarily on birds, but some mammals and insects will be featured. Our area abounds in wildlife that many are not aware of. Please join us as we journey through the seasons and view these wonderful creatures of nature through the lenses of one of our area’s top photographers.

Lloyd, a well-known birder and accomplished photographer who started out birding with SSAS and helped lead several of our annual Central Park trips many years later, lives and works in New York City and the surrounding area. His photographs have appeared in Audubon, Natural History, Birder’s World, WildBird, and Birding magazines, as well as in The New York Times and Daily News. He has had images published in World Wildlife Fund songbird calendars and Audubon trail guides. Lloyd is one of the three authors of Visions: Earth’s Elements in Bird and Nature Photography, which was published in 2012 and contains 460 photographs on its 240 pages.
