Don Getty's Wildlife & Nature GalleryFor years I had heard about nature photographers going to southern Arizona to photograph hummingbirds in Madera Canyon and I had also heard that the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum was a great place to shoot. Not being fond of heat, Arizona wasn’t high on my wish-list of places to go. Despite the horrid climate, I decided to give it a try. Yes, even in April it gets hot, but I found the hummingbirds to be great subjects as well as a plethora of other birds and a few mammals. With a few minor exceptions, the wildlife subjects that I photographed in Arizona I had never even seen before. Yes I survived the heat and I may even return for more great photography, but never in the summer.
