Ty Smedes will join Audubon Omaha once again after leading his fifth visit to Africa photographing wildlife. Here is what he has to say about his presentation. “We will view images of Africa and learn about Botswana in a very intimate way; and will see birds and mammals with young, catching prey, and interacting in fascinating ways. Best mammals include, elephant, lion, leopard, cape buffalo, hippo, African wild cat, and the rare and elusive Wild Dog. Botswana’s bird life is fantastic, offering a dazzling number of species which are very viewable, and with many bird images captured from boats plying the Chobe River and the winding channels of Botswana’s famed Okavango Delta. If you would like to see and learn more about Botswana’s fabulous birds and mammals than what you will ever see on TV, please join us for an entertaining evening.”
His photos and articles have been published in major magazines and books. He has published two books, “Capturing Iowa’s Seasons” and “The Return of Iowa’s Bald Eagles” which he will bring with him to the meeting along with matted prints of his photographic work. He has taught photography and has lead nature photography tours to Yellowstone, Brazil and the subject of his presentation Africa.
Please plan on enjoying Ty’s wonderful photos and experiences at Audubon Omaha general meeting Thursday October 10th at 7 pm at the Hanscom Park Methodist Church, 4444 Frances St (one block south of 45th and Center). The program will be followed by a brief business meeting and social hour with cookies. Everyone is most welcome and there is no cost.
