On Thursday and Saturday this past week, I guided nature photography groups on tours to South Padre Island and to the National Butterfly Center at Mission. The photographers were attending the Rio Grande Valley Birding Festival in Harlingen with several hundred birders from around the U.S. Since photographers need to get much closer to their subjects than birders and they need to spend more time with a subject than birders, it helps to have the groups separated.
Here are some of the images I captured while coaching the other photographers. Enjoy!
