Next Meeting, November 7, 2018

7:00 pm

John Lampkin , "Bugs in your Bloomers"

John Lampkin returns with a new presentation "Bugs in your Bloomers".
If you missed his March visit to Suncoast , you may not realize what a highly entertaining speaker he is. His insect close-up photographs are bizarre and beautiful.

John is a citizen naturalist and photographer and now retired from a New York music career, he explores and marvels at the Floridian universe with macro lens in hand. His long-range project is to photograph and catalog the flora and fauna of the Sun City Center Nature Trails. Not coincidentally, as a professional composer his woodwind quintet, "Insects:A Musical Entomology in Six Legs" won the Grand Prize in a Composers Guild international competition. John also constructs crossword puzzles for the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, the LA Times and other venues, with many of his puzzles having nature themes. Except for his fascination with bugs and plants he is totally harmless.

John will also be guiding us in a walk on, Friday, November 9, at the Sun City Center Nature Trails. See the field trip listing on MeetUp or Walks/Field Trips on this website for more information.



Light Refreshments are served and a plant auction follows the main meeting
