‘Of Birds and Bees - a Journey of Discovery’ by Erica Siegel - Community Arts Display
Redland Performing Arts Centre

The exhibition ‘Of Birds and Bees - a Journey of Discovery’ by Erica Siegel AFIAP AAPS consists of 88 stunning photographic works.  

Erica Siegel, of Birkdale, is a self-taught wildlife photographer specialising in birds and invertebrates, particularly native solitary bees.  She has been a member of the Redland Camera Club since 2009 and was featured in Sue des Brosses Exhibition ‘Stories from Hear’ at the Redland museum in June 2013. In 2014 she was the Inspiring Senior of Division 10 and local author Louise Gibbon wrote about her in her book ‘The Voice of Women in the Redlands Strength and Inspiration’.

During National Honey Month in 2016 Erica had an exhibition of 35 native bee photographs at the Redland museum where she also gave a talk on solitary native bees. Erica Siegel's bee photographs have so far been published in six books and various other publications, including The Australian Beekeeping Manual by Robert Owen. DPI NSW also used 20 of her native bee photographs in the ‘Australian native bees’  AgGuide, released in 2016.

She photographs bees in her garden and other parts of the Redlands, and once a year she travels to various places in Australia in search of birds to photograph, including north-east Kimberly WA in 2015,  Coorong SA in 2016, Warby Ranges Victoria in 2017 and this year back to Western Australia's South Coast. In this year’s trip to Western Australia she hopes to find the rather elusive Southern Emu-wren, Red-eared Firetail and the Red-winged Fairy-wren, endemic to the South western corner of Western Australia.
