February meetup - Busch Wildlife Sanctuary

February's meetup will be at Busch Wildlife Sanctuary in Jupiter.

We will be visiting on Sunday, when the park is NOT open to the public. Please note that this meetup is limited to 20 members and because of that, I will schedule a 2nd meetup the following Sunday, March 3rd (also limited to 20 members).

The format of this meetup will be as follows. The group will split up into 2 groups of 10. One group will go on a special tour with experienced staff where they will get special access into certain areas such as INSIDE the bald eagle tent (see below for a shot I took last time I went). The second group will have free time to roam around the park. Mid-way, the two groups will switch.

We did this meetup a LONG time ago... I think it was even before the meetup.com group was started. I'm definitely looking forward to going back as it's a great opportunity for close ups. I took this photo there last time I went.

    Tammy, I'm in the group scheduled for this Sunday. What with the uncertainty of the weather (cold/rain), is there any chance this meetup could be postponed and/or rescheduled? Or is the date and time carved in stone?
    I just saw another meetup for this weekend (in Miami) get cancelled due to expected inclement weather.

      Chance of rain is only 30%. If something happens & it gets rained out we can try to reschedule for another month.

      So I should check the meetup site before I leave the house? I mean, after I look out the window, lol

    Great Photo Shoot, as always! Thanks, Tammy.
    Had to leave early for my grandson's 15th birthday...but still got some great shots. The critters were happy to oblige!

      We're going to get pretty close to the animals so I dont think we need a super long lens. The eagle shot above was taken with my[masked] (and then probably cropped a little).

    Any suggestions not the choice of lens length?

    Why the cost? Last time I was there, they just asked for a donation--no entrance fee. Has their policy changed?

      The benefit of going right into the enclosures (deer & bald eagle) was really substantial to me when I went.

      No question about that. Everyone who is free to go on this shoot should do it.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
