Today’s Guided nature Program…
NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY – SQUIRRELS OF BOGUS BASIN
Did you know there are 7 species of the squirrel family in and around Bogus Basin? They include the red squirrel, northern flying squirrel, least chipmunk, yellow pine chipmunk, golden mantled ground squirrel, Columbian ground squirrel, and yellow-bellied marmot. Except for the flying squirrel, these animals provide an excellent entry into the world of wildlife photography because of their daytime activities and habits. During this Nature Photography program we will examine the life history of the animals and “hunt” them with our cameras. We will discuss the challenges of photographing wildlife, how to photograph wildlife, and the desirable equipment needed to photograph wildlife. Given the nature of the subject matter, enthusiasts with DSLR, mirrorless, or even old 35mm SLRs with longer lenses are suggested. But then again, many of the newer smartphones and compact pocket cameras have surprising capabilities that would surely work for our purposes. This program is only one of the many guided nature programs offered this summer.
