The Santa Clara Ranch is a wildlife preserve located in the Rio Grande Valley which is designed specifically for photographers. Five comfortable blinds allow the photographer to get extremely close to the mammals and birds that gather around the pools. Nine of us, all members of the Heard Nature Photographers, a camera club in North Texas, spent four days at the site in November, 2012.
