Renowned nature photographer, Elinor Osborn of Craftsbury will share a slideshow of her owl photography, and will provide the audience with a glimpse into the work of a nature photographer. The presentation will also include Owl Vocalizations and a Q&A. Elinor says: “Photography enables me to see details of nature which remain hidden from casual observation. There are so many exciting aspects of plants, animals, weather phenomena etc. to find and learn about, especially here in Vermont.”
She was the 2009 winner in Nature’s Best Photography Backyards Contest sponsored by Nature’s Best, the most prestigious nature photography magazine in the U.S. Magazines, such as Vermont Life, Click, Cross Country Skier, Stowe Guide, Northern Woodlands, Vermont Sports, Vermont magazine, VT Sports and many books have published her photos.
