Lucifer Hummingbirds with Multiple Flashes

There isn’t much time left to sign up for the Lucifer Hummingbird Instructional Photo Tour at the Christmas Mountains Oasis, Texas.  The dates are May 8-10 and two slots are available.  Our small group will photograph these incredibly beautiful hummers at a multi-flash setup and with natural light.  You will also see scaled quail, various songbirds and other hummingbird species, too.

We will have it all to ourselves for three days.  Check out the trip description on this website and contact me at: to register.  Click on the photos below for a view of the birds.  When you click on an image, it will open in a larger, sharper format for best viewing.
