Photojounalist Session 1, Day 4

July 14, 2016 6:57 PM | Anonymous

Today we asked Alexus whether she would like to be Photojournalist for the day. We explained that she was being asked to capture the activities of the day and her teammates in action doing the activities. She would have free reign to capture neat things during the day. She not only accepted, but made it clear that the role would really be exciting for her. She is on the Owls team, which had a guest Team Naturalist in Seth Winkelhake, filling in for Robin Harrower, who was tied up with preparation for another activity.

Alexus caught a shot of the team heading out on the trail to the Wetlands Overlook.

A teammate saw or did something cool, which Seth acknowledged to the team.

As the activity went on, it was necessary to regroup and plan the next step...

As suggested, Alexus also caught some shots of her teammates...

Too soon, it was time to head back to the EE Shelter.

The owl pellet dissection is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you'll get. Alexus uncovered a complete foot from a snack her owl ingested. 

With a small amount of enhancement, Alexus' dissection of the pellet and her capturing of the foot in a picture speaks for itself:

Alexus demonstrated her artistic talents as well today. Here is an incredibly beautiful shot of a butterfly courtesy of today's Photojournalist.

Exceptional job, Alexus! Thanks for sharing.
