Photographing wildlife is a good test of skill, and Arizona abounds with opportunities to practice. Bobcats trotting through the underbrush, stately great blue herons striking fish, or ingeniously camouflaged lizards hidden in plain sight can challenge any photographer. Being ready to capture opportunity when it comes is the key. By staying alert for that special wildlife encounter, anybody might capture an image worthy of the top prize.
