With even a superficial glance, Southern Arizona’s Sonoran Desert is a fascinating place. With the help of experts though, we’ve put together a photo tour that will allow us to photograph some of the secret occurrences that few people ever see let alone capture with a camera. We’ll spend time in blinds around water features and feeding stations focusing on the incredible desert birds, but that’s only the start. We’ll also be able to work feeding hummingbirds, captive reptiles, and when the sun goes down we keep shooting. At night we’ll have several species of owls and bats to keep us from getting sleepy. The gear and the know-how will be provided. We only need to show up with our cameras to obtain some incredible images.
