Danny Green of Leicester spoke about the art of wildlife photography and how to capture the perfect shot - sometimes taking thousands of shots and up to a week just to get that one magical image.

Many members and guests came from other clubs to see Danny, whose images are widely published.

In a different evening, members enjoyed a practical night with Stuart Ball, past president of the Peterborough Photographic Society.
