Aug 14 & 21 - Observing flies

We're happy to announce another online meeting! Here are the details:

This week we'll be focusing more on the observing side of things, rather than strictly identifying. We'll discuss how to take good, identifiable photos of Diptera, including the proper angles, how to get close without losing the subject, etc. On the 14th, we'll work together to create a list of observing tactics including the noted things. On the 21st, I plan to be out in a local park, taking photos of flies real-time to put our effort to the test. On the 14th we will also determine a time earlier in the day on the 21st that will work well, so that those who wish to can join me in the field (online) to use our shared knowledge!

Just as a reminder: our meetings are entirely informal, and everyone is invited to speak their minds and ask questions to the group. Participation is key to learning!

Please leave a comment either to let us know if you're planning to come or to subscribe to be notified of future events! Questions are also welcome.

The Zoom meetings will open at 8 PM EDT on Sunday the 14th, and TBD PM EDT on Sunday the 21st.
