    Good basic info. Shooting was stimulating part but others in group, tended to converse while shooting and distract birds, etc. It would be nice to mix it up and shoot some of the other birds in the park as well.

    Great workshop on an interesting/cute subject. Allan was very informative: Gave some ideas that I will definitely try. Hopefully, I will have more hummingbirds visitting me soon. Thanks for organizing/planning this fun event, Allan, Joan and Steve. Looking forward to your next event.

    I enjoyed sharing what I know about photography and natural history. Hope everyone learned something about shooting hummingbirds and wildlife photography.

    I again scouted the area today, still looking good for the trip. Please check your emails. I want a confirmation from all that said YES to the trip. Joan will be scouting the area this weekend also. Check out my preview pictures I have been taking before the trip.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
