Slideshow recap

6 December 2007 4 Comments Home » Birds, Exhibitions

My Aerial Acrobats slideshow at the Royal Oak Nature Society last night was fun and had me talking much more than usual. The room was crowded and there were many questions.

I went through close to a hundred bird images, many new and seen for the first time. I showed several large prints, and sold smaller prints, maybe for Christmas presents.

There was much discussion on the habits of backyard birds, and how best to attract specific species.

I’ll be showing some of the new work on my blog in the coming months, and will be regularly changing the work on my bird website, I’m hoping to do many more of these presentations in the future.

    I do hope this means more insect images! I came across an insect zodiac chart recently and immediately thought of your site. Who would’ve thought bugs as star sign?!

    No need to worry that I’ll be posting insect images less, Rowena. An ant made an appearance in the latest post, and I have many more coming.

    I’m no fan of astrology, but I can’t imagine a more diverse class of animals than insects to better represent the vasty deep of the night sky.

    Is a scorpion a bug Rick? Because that is a zodiac sign!

    I am not surprised that your presentation went well. You capture the details of our bird and insect companions that largely go unseen!

  • Rick said:

    A scorpion is not an insect, Deb, but like them it is an Arthropod. It’s an arachnid, which also includes the spiders.

    I have a scorpion given to me by Karl Edward Wagner during a long ago World Fantasy Con. I still miss Karl.
