The Great Pittsburgh Nature Photography Adventure

Join Pittsburgh photographer Don Orkoskey of WDO Photography on his free monthly nature photo adventure through the incredible Frick Park Join the great Pittsburgh nature photography adventure Sept. 24th at 9:30 am in Frick Park.

There are still some late blooming flowers but many have gone to seed bringing both insects and birds to the meadows.
