For those of you in the St. Louis area, I’ll be speaking tomorrow evening at the Missouri Nature & Environmental Photographers monthly meeting. Details are as follows:

How To Photograph Army Ants (And Survive)
speaker: Alex Wild

November 20, 2012 6:00 – 8:00 PM
St. Louis County Library Headquarters
1640 South Lindbergh Boulevard

Alex Wild, a biologist and superb close-up photographer, will present How To Photograph Army Ants and Survive at the November meeting. Army ants are small, fast-moving animals that live in dark habitats, making them especially challenging as photographic subjects. To make matters worse, they aren’t shy about biting and stinging. This talk will cover the macro-photographic techniques used to shoot these difficult but fascinating insects. These techniques are applicable regardless of the photographic subject.
