A Few Of My Favorite Places (that I’ve actually visited in the last couple of years…)

January 20, 2018

If you will excuse a short pause from bringing images out of the portfolio…

In the past couple of years I have not done as much shooting as I would like to have.  But I do definitely have some favorite places to shoot.  And of these, here are a few places I’ve actually made it out to while my traveling schedule became curtailed:

La Lomita Wildlife Photography Ranch (Uvalde County, TX):  La Lomita opened up last year and I made three separate visits out to the ranch.  Wonderful place to shoot, reasonably close to my adopted hometown of San Antonio, Texas, and for a private ranch a very reasonable fee.  My portfolio of Painted Bunting shots have come out of La Lomita.

Rocking R6 Ranch (Webb County, TX):  Another private ranch that has setup for photographers.  I have visited the Rocking R6 each of the last 5 years.  I hope to make it a 6th year in a row this year.  Also a very reasonable fee.  My portfolio of Crested Caracara shots have come out of the Rocking R6.

Crescent Bend Nature Park (Bexar County, TX): Located on the eastern edge of Bexar County, this small park with its two bird blinds and access to Cibolo Creek for dragonflies and shore/water birds.

Hornsby Bend Bird Observatory (Travis County, TX): One of the premier sites in Central Texas for butterflies and dragonflies.  Some of my favorite dragonfly images have come out of this park.

Southeast Metropolitan Park (Travis County, TX): Another of my favorite dragonfly spots.  Not nearly as flat as Hornsby Bend.

Cook’s Slough Nature Park (Uvalde County, TX): Wonderful spot for dragonflies and butterflies.
