A visit to the Camargue, in the South of France

Rtn. Arthur Bowles entertained us with a presentation of his visit to the Camargue, in the South of France

At our meeting on Tuesday, 11th february, 2014, Rtn. Arthur Bowles stepped in at the last moment, as our scheduled speaker was unable to attend, and entertained us with a presentation of his visit to the Camargue in the South of France.  Arthur is a keen photographer of wildlife, and was able to snow us some of his excellent images of bulls, which roam freely in the area and also white horses which are born  brown but change to white on maturity.   There are many orchards and vineyards in the area and Arthur was able to capture some marvellous pictures showing the very stony and rough ground on which, carefully camouflaged, were members of the cricket family, a scorpion and  lizards.  He also had pictures of various butterflies and  birds, including a hoopoe, flamingoes, a merlin and a buzzard.  After congratulating him on the quality of his pictures Rtn. Tom Pearce thanked Arthur for stepping into the breach at very short notice and for his very interesting talk.
