A local photographer
Nicola Stuart, with her dog, Snug, and her camera, has been a regular user of the Edward Hunter Heritage Bush Reserve, for over 10 years. She explains that “the Edward Hunter is a great place to walk Snug (the dog), is reasonably close to home, nice and cool and it’s lovely to have a bit of water for Snug to paddle in”.
She has contributed a selection of images of the Reserve and when asked what catches her eye, explains, “Colour and shape are things that catch my attention. I do like to capture close up images of flowers, be they native or weeds…if the colour/shape looks good, I’ll snap it.”
“I would love to capture more of the numerous butterflies on the trails and in the bush around Moe, but they are not very co-operative subjects. Following a recent overseas trip, I would love the opportunity to capture some hummingbirds and exotic wildlife as well (and this is something for the bucket list!).”
A local, Nicola, has been a member of the Moe Yallourn Rail Trail Friends group for the past five years and is a member of the Moe Botanical Gardens Committee of Management. Both these areas are very close to the Edward Hunter Heritage Bush Reserve. It would be good to plan for a more formal connection of trails and pathways between the Reserve and the Moe Botanical Gardens and the link with the Moe Yallourn rail trail.
