Robert Chelmick, Papilio demofocus #2

Bob Chelmick is an award winning radio host - you may be heard him on CKUA. But he’s also a talented photographer. The Red Deer MAG was given the generous gift of 47 large format cibachrome photographs. This collection of photographs allows us to see flora and fauna, especially insects, in a highly detailed, magnified closeup. The result is a photograph rich in texture and colour and a reminder of the stunning beauty found in nature.
