For the Love of Nature
Donna Lorello

A Red Admiral butterfly peers down from a branch almost as if it were staring curiously at the lens focused on it. A Humpback Whale dives and begins to circle while exhaling under water creating a ‘net’ of bubbles to allow for its pod mates to feed on the trapped sand lance fish. The petal of a Black-eyed Susan seems to curl delicately downward creating a unique perspective. A multitude of colored scales come together to create the patterns of a butterfly’s wing. From blue hour to daybreak, the colors created by the rising sun create a beautiful ‘painting’ in the sky.

With a passion for all things wild that began at a very early age, nature enthusiast and photographer, Donna Lorello, will share some of her experiences in how she captures anything nature has to offer. From birds and mammals, insects and flowers, water drops and sunrises, anything natural is fair game for her lens.

Join us on June 14 as Donna shares some of her experiences in how she photographs her subjects.
