Well, I’m back from leading my annual South Texas Birding Safari and once again, the private blinds of the Rio Grande Valley did not let us down. I captured this image while sitting in a blind with several of my clients (we all got similar shots); the Kiskadee decided to start hunting aquatic insects directly in front of us!

I captured this image with the Nikon D500 and the Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6E AFS VR Nikkor zoom lens. This is quite possibly the best wildlife/birding combination that you can get for under $4000. I highly recommend it!
