Wings Over Willcox ~ Whitewater Draw
Arizona Game and Fish
These gentleman were truly professionals in their photographic skills and in their people skills. They knew when to make the instructive and constructive comment that was specific to the setting at hand as well as being appropriate to the group in general. Their presentations and style were different yet complementary, obviously there is a history here of having collaborated with one another.
I would participate on any of their photo tours without hesitation.
Wings Over Willcox is an extremely well organized and well run nature and birding festival in this, its 20th year.
Whitewater Draw Wildlife Area
Tom Whetton has me convinced that all wildlife photographers and/or birders should be buying hunting licenses and duck stamps to support the wildlife areas that they appreciate and frequent. Otherwise we are freeloading on others. Those license fees go directly to Arizona Game and Fish.

Cochise County, Arizona has been a way interesting area to spend some time. I would return.
Now on to Bosque del Apache NWR in New Mexico and then the great yet quirky state of Texas.
