I was dead tired when I got home, but you know what? It was so worth it. Not only did I learn how much I don't know about the technical aspects of photography, I learned about things about composition I have always appreciated, but never could quantify why....and enjoyed the company of the other participants! The animals were breathtakingly beautiful and so well taken care of ;-) The staff at Lakota was more than accommodating. The folks from Tamron were delightful (Patty!!!!) and Unique provided a wonderful opportunity along with assistance when needed. I highly recommend this trip to anyone with an interest in wildlife photography as a MUST DO! Thank you to all involved in coordinating and to those who were on the trip participating... should have exchanged emails and phones!!!!!

absolutely wonderful excursion!

you won't regret getting up so early on a saturday once you see the animals. Outstanding opportunity and something you will never be able to have in nature. The setting is perfectly natural, and the animals are very relaxed. When I went, the wolves were howling I had such a good time that I signed up for another trip!
