Honey Bee and I went today and purchased a mid level DSLR Nikon D3200 camera with 3 lenses and a 2x tele converter.
Hopefully we can learn to use this setup this summer and take some "Ironwood" quality pictures.

Photography is a great challenging hobby.

Just be warned, y'all will end up spending as much on cameras as you do on guns if you don't watch it. :W:

If this is your first midrange DSLR there are tons of tutorials on youtube for the D3200.
Also some great on line courses for DSLR Photography.
Shoot a lot post a few ;-)

Remember when shooting "Wildlife" some topless bars do not allow cameras. ;-)

As of now the largest lens we have is a Nikon VR 55-300mm.
Yes since this is a digital we can shoot and shoot. practice and practice.
This camera is way smarter than I am
