    Wildlife Photography – Serious wildlife photography requires serious gear.
    Occasionally, with good lighting, a steady hand and a little luck, one can get great images
    of wildlife using a low power (70 to 200mm) lens, but more often, without a little more mm
    and little less F stop, the images are just too blurry or the subject too small for a quality
    print. Also, when capturing images of wildlife, especially rare or marginalized species, it’s
    very important to not have to get so close to the subject that it agitates them or causes
    them to flush if you can at all help it.  
    Wildlife photography requires more patience than bird and wildlife watching. Getting good
    results is a combination of great gear, being at the right place at the right time,  
    experience with outdoor lighting situations and certain amount of luck. If you think a
    Landscape and/or Wildlife Photography Excursion is for you, then consider combining it
    with a Full or Multi-day trip. We have some great gear available and the experience to
    lead you to the best places at the most opportune times. During these trips we discuss
    and train you on the usage of the equipment and how to use the natural lighting situations
    presented to us to get great results.
