We have several workshops throughout the year from Intro to Nature Photography to Macro Photography to HerpShots
We love being able to capture nature in ways our naked eye don’t normally get to see. We capture insects in flight and in the context of their native environment.

A field guide for the Damselflies of Texas. The artwork in this book is outstanding and help you ID dragonflies with binoculars or from your photo’s or simply in your back yard. Hope you enjoy!
This is the first guide to dragonflies and damselflies of the south-central United States. The book covers 263 species, representing more than half of the North American fauna. The area of coverage significantly overlaps with other regions of the country making this book a useful aid in identifying the dragonflies and damselflies in any part of the United States, Canada, or northeastern Mexico.
