Local photographer takes international prize


Sam Nerrie, long time local nature photographer has just won a 3rd place(Macro)  in the International Photography awards with this image of two Common Bluetail (ischnura heterosticta) Damselflies. It's a great image, taken in Bournda National Park, but she is a bit confused as she thought the female of the species should be brown. Any ideas anyone?

Sam is offering to run a Macro Photography course in the next school holidays, probably at Wallagoot Lake and Manna Park.

Sunday 23rd April 9:00am - 1:30pm. Best photos are in the morning and it is low tide at noon.

The cost will be $120 pp, Atlas members 10% discount. Includes morning tea. There will be a limit of 10 people so please let us know if you are interested. info@atlasoflife.org.au

These two damselfies were seen at Bournda National Park, NSW, Australia. It had been a bumper damselfly and dragonfly season and they were easily seen near waterways.

Great chance to learn from an expert, and it will help improve your sightings records on the Atlas too!

This close-up adn macro photography course will examine how to bring out the best in your little creature or flower. Take stunning photos of the micro world of creatures with great tuition from internationally awarded phtographer, Sam Nerrie. Courses running on the Sapphire Coast and Canberra.
