Join professional wildlife photographer instructor Kathleen Reeder for an incredible hummingbird photo workshop in beautiful Sedona, Arizona during the annual hummingbird migration. Capture tack-sharp wings with gorgeous backgrounds. With expert wildlife photography instruction before and during the workshop, and an unbelievable quantity of hummingbirds to photograph in glorious Red Rock country, you will most certainly capture lots of great images! Timed to occur the following weekend after the Sedona Hummingbird Festival. Plan to attend both!
