Program: Krisztina Scheeff - Photographing the Spirit of Birds

The event was held on Monday, May 16, 2022 from 7:30 PM to 10:00 PM.

There is a thrill in capturing the exciting moment of a Grebe running across the water’s surface, or that split-second shot of a baby bird poking its head from its nest. Renowned nature photographer Krisztina Scheeff of KS Nature Photography expertly photographs these moments. In this talk, Krisztina will delve into the stories of her favorite birds, such as the sweet Atlantic Puffins in Scotland, and the explosive flight of the Sandhill Cranes in Bosque del Apache. From California to Galapagos Islands, Costa Rica and Scotland, Krisztina will take you on a journey of wildlife photography, birds and more.  Krisztina will also share useful tips for finding and photographing birds in the wild, including San Diego’s celebrities: the rushing Grebes of Lake Hodges.
