Yes, pictures, pictures, pictures. Pictures are never boring.
Many years ago I volunteered my sister to give a talk to our Botany Club. She had been working summers in a fire watch tower in the Montana wilderness and loved to take pictures. She gave a slide show of pictures she had taken the previous summer.
One picture was of a helicopter and waterbucket hovering over her watch tower. She explained that lightning had struck her outhouse and set it on fire. So she called it in over the radio telling the dispatcher that her outhouse was on fire. The helicopter came and dumped a bucket of water on it.
Another was of a rather large spider on its web in her tower. She said that the spider had eight legs until after she took the picture, and then it didn't have any legs.
Everybody enjoyed the show, even though there were few references to plants. So, it doesn't matter if what you talk about isn't necessarily botanically related, it just needs to be entertaining...
