I am opening a wildlife photography ranch near Uvalde, TX (blinds for bird/mammal photography, workshops, etc) and I am building blinds now. Here are some shots from my portable blind setup in the ones being built.

Well those shots are just beautiful! What will your fees be to shoot there? It sounds like a great idea!

The rates vary by season (spring, summer, fall/winter) and are very reasonable. You can check out the website at www.lonehillphotoranch​.com (external link). Your shots above are excellent as well! This forum really has some awesome photographers and one of my favorites to check.

I recently stepped up to the 600II and I like the extra reach, especially combined with the 7D2, however, I have to get reacquainted with the 1.6 crop camera body. I have not shot with a 1.6 body in about 5 years. These are with the 5D3 though.

Thank you butterfly.

I like your Purple Finches. I had a pair come to my back yard about a month or so ago, but they have not been back since. I got a shot of them drinking from my bird bath. The Titmouse are one of my good buddies. They are so funny. It's funny watching flit about looking for food.

There is one thing I can guarantee anyone thinking about this lens it will not disappoint! In fact you will wonder why you did not part with that money sooner. The joy and amazement you will experience is priceless! Expensive yes but definitely worth it!

Very nice shots Lee, Carol and Al. Thought I would bump the thread with a few shots.
