Ruth Hoyt, naturalist and full-time photographer, specializing in wildlife, will be giving a presentation to Perfect Picture 4-H Monday, Jan. 5, at 5:00 pm at the Raymond Gould Community Center in Vidor. You do not have to be a 4-H member to attend and the presentation is free of charge.

Hoyt loves to travel for photography, adventure and fun but prefers living in South Texas ranch country where she photographs, leads workshops and tours, guide photographers on private ranches and teach nature photography both in classes and private instructions. Ms. Hotys’ work has been exhibited at the Smithsonian Institute, Missouri Botanical Garden, Powder Valley Nature Center, Shaw Nature Reserve and St. Louis Artists’ Guild, and is on permanent display in various states in the United States. Some of her photo credits are National Geographic Books, The Nature Conservancy, Birder’s World, Texas Wildlife Association, just to mention a few. She has won major awards such as Nature’s Best (International). Valley Land Fund (Texas) and First Grand Prize with her partner and teammate John Pickles in the Coastal Bend’s wildlife photo contest (based in Texas ranch land).
