When in Tucson, Mary and I strongly suggest you check out this museum. It is not so much a museum, but a zoo, aquarium, and museum rolled into one. Here is what you might see:
The Museum is 16 miles and 40 minutes west of downtown Tucson. There is a big parking lot, but get there early because of the heat and the crowds. There is a nice walking path, but it is built on th side of a hill, so it does meander up and down. Wear comfortable shoes.
Unfortunately, we did have quite a few sleepers.
Some more of our favorites.
Finally, they had a walk-in hummingbird sanctuary with knowledgeable staffers.
We used mostly 200 mm lenses. I also suggest that cropping into squares can be very pleasing when making “portraits” of animals.
