The Rio Grande Valley is a mecca for bird photographers from all over. Many come to capture images of species infrequently found in the USA except for this area. You can join in on this action, too! An example of the action is this roadrunner with a meal of butterflies, a very unusual sight. This bird and its activity was photographed last October by Nancy Naylor, one of my bird photography workshop participants from Austin.
My workshops are be held at the Laguna Seca Ranch in the heart of the lush Rio Grande Valley. Features of this 700-acre ranch are purpose-designed for bird photography and preserved with all-native plants and animals. It features four constant-level ponds, each with permanent photography blinds oriented for the best in photography. Another set of blinds are constructed specifically for raptors. Each location has been hand-crafted, and they all provide outstanding birding and photographing opportunities. With nearly eighty species listed on the property, Laguna Seca Ranch clearly offers a unique South Texas birding and photography adventure! At Laguna Seca Ranch we bring the birds to you!
We will set up natural perches considering the best photographic light possible. Most photography of the best scenarios is just 12-15 feet from your lens! Birds have water, dripping attractions and are fed year-round so attraction of the best species is stress-free.
There are only two spaces left for my next workshop, now scheduled from February 6-9, 2014. If you want in on the great spring action in South Texas, you should check out this opportunity here: http://www.thenatureconnection.com/SoTxBirdPhotoWS.html .
