Teresa & Michael McGill presented “Nature in Motion,” a combination of wildlife photography and videography, at our May 11, 2016, meeting.  On almost a weekly basis, they film amazing wildlife at Seney, the U.P.’s National Wildlife Refuge. From bears and wolves to birds and reptiles, their photos can be viewed on Facebook or at http://mcgillsnatureinmotion.com/.

They talked about Seney’s history as a wildlife refuge, how to locate, observe and photograph wildlife, and emphasized the importance of ethical photography, keeping a respectful distance to protect both your subject and yourself. When humans encroach on wild animals and get hurt, authorities may be forced to kill that animal. Please be considerate!
