My wife and I wanted a nature photography vacation in South Texas and, after reviewing several opportunities, chose Ruth. On the day of our adventure, we were blessed with very good weather and light. Ruth met us at a convenient location and led us onto the ranch a short distance away. We were positioned in a comfortable pit blind by early morning and were photographing birds almost immediately. I don't want to give away Ruth's secrets, but the methods she uses to attract birds to perfect photography setups and distances are sophisticated and ingenious! My wife and I each took hundreds of photos at both the morning and evening stand locations. And honestly, we could have taken a lot more. Because of the tremendous extent of the photographic opportunities, we had the luxury of being quite selective.
I would highly recommend this adventure, not only for the opportunity to take some great photos, but also as a learning experience for your other unguided adventures. Ruth is very informative and helpful with both the photographic aspects and the tips and tricks for getting the birds and other wildlife where you want them. Whether you are a novice or an expert photographer, I am confident you will enjoy the experience and take away valuable information and knowledge. that will make you a better nature photographer.
