"Phlorography - Artistic Floral Photography" with Jackie Kramer (7:00 PM EDT)
Jackie has been passionate about photography since her dad gave her a camera in high school. Orchids, hibiscus, and bromeliads at Selby Gardens and wading birds at Lido Beach and Longboat Key became Jackie's favorite subjects.
