Birder and renowned bird photographer, Dr. Larry O’Meallie, will share with us his best images of hummingbirds. Larry began photographing tropical birds 45 years ago.

He has made more than 25 photographic excursions to Columbia, Peru, Equador, Brazil and Panama. He specializes in capturing in-flight images, particularly of hummingbirds. His main goal is to obtain crisp images without the fast beating wings rendered as a blur. Larry started birdwatching in his 20s, and had the great fortune to bird with and become friends with Louisiana ornithologist George Lowery. There will be other beautiful and interesting birds besides hummingbirds, but many, many hummingbirds are guaranteed…

Although now retired, Dr. O’Meallie is well-known for his long career as a New Orleans physician specializing in cardiology, internal medicine and cardiovascular disease.
