Cattaraugus County photographer Michael Weishan packed a variety of adventures into ten days in Honduras.
Weishan will share a photographic tour of his trip to the Mayan Ruins at Copan and his stay at an eco-resort in the Pico Bonito Rain Forest at the Audubon Nature Center’s First Friday Lunch Bunch. Because of the New Year’s holiday, the event will be on January 8, 2016, the second Friday of the month.
At the 11 a.m. gathering, Weishan will also show pictures of visiting Macaw Mountain Bird Park and Nature Reserve, snorkeling the reef in the Cayos Cochinos Islands, and taking a boat tour of the Cuero y Salado Manatee and Wildlife Refuge. Along with photographs, he will share his many experiences and what he learned about Honduras, including its Mayan History, wildlife, and culture.
An award-winning photographer, Weishan specializes in nature, fine art and location/lifestyle portrait photography. His work has been exhibited frequently and published in calendars, brochures, tourist guides and on corporate websites. He strives to create an awareness and appreciation of the beauty in nature. He has presented workshops and programs on how to take better vacation photos and has been the photo archivist at Jamestown’s Roger Tory Peterson Institute.
Following the program, coffee and tea will be provided for a BYO brown bag lunch. The fee for attending is $8 or $6 for Friends of the Nature Center. Reservations are not required.
The Audubon Nature Center is at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, New York, and Warren, Pennsylvania.
