Explore the birds of Africa through the lens of photo safari leader Judy Benson LaNier.  Come and share her fascination for the grandeur and variety of these exotic creatures.

Ashland artist, Judy Benson LaNier captures the essence of the natural world through her camera lens. She has travelled extensively in Africa and photographed beautiful and exotic birds in her travels. She describes her photos as “My work is the product of a lifetime of looking for beauty in the simplicity and complexity of nature: an ant on a flower’s stem, a rain drop on a rose, a lion hiding in the bush, a Hawaiian sunset…and finding it with my lens.” Her work has been published in books and magazines and has been shown in galleries and art shows around Oregon for 30 years.
