  • NaturesLens invites wildlife photographers of amateur & semi-professional ability to join them in escaping to the beautiful Andalusian town of Adamuz in Sierra Morena. Adamuz is a thriving hub of native species. The various mammals & avian species that co-exist in the area is incredible.
    This is the same location that we make use of during our spring trip, Eagles & Raptors of Spain, but at the time of year that this trip is being run, our target species are something altogether different! You will spend four nights, five packed-full days taking the opportunity to spend time in hides, in cars & on foot, hopefully enabling the capture of stunning images of wolf, ibex, golden eagle, imperial eagle, wildcat & of course, the Iberian Lynx.
    Join NaturesLens to capture images of Iberian Lynx, Wildcat & both Golden & Imperial Eagle, in Spain, during the Wildcats, Eagles & the Iberian Lynx of Spain past event. This past event is of 4 night/5 day duration on a Half Board, Non-Shared basis & costs £1499  £1399 per participant.
    It has taken years to habituate the lynx & wildcat to the presence of the hides & we are very excited to be able to offer you the opportunity to capture all the target species within their habitats & interacting with one another.
    With a selection of comfortable hides throughout the area at our disposal, we will provide you with the best photography opportunities possible.
    Small group sizes allow you to capture spectacular images from the best angles, with photography guidance provided by Victoria, the accompanying guide from NaturesLens where needed.
    This leads to facilitating stunning shots from the car for the wolves & each of the photographic hides that you will have access to. From the majestic Imperial Eagle to the small, but ferocious, wildcat, you should leave with some amazing photographs & experiences. To give the best chance of capturing award-worthy images, we include three hide sessions with the lynx; the Iberian Lynx is a naturally shy animal, but these hide sessions are proving to be extremely productive.
    NaturesLens provides a trip of 5 days duration packed with photographic opportunities, where your photography will benefit from unrivalled access to hides, placed strategically within the landscape to provide the optimum opportunity to photograph species such as golden eagle, imperial eagle, kestrel, lynx & wildcat. You may even spot other species at some of the hides, including red fox & Egyptian mongoose.
    This is a unique opportunity to photograph some of Spain’s most impressive, yet elusive species.
    Accommodation is provided on a full board basis – from a light breakfast through to a 3-course dinner with a picnic lunch in between. Everything is taken care of for you so that experiencing & photographing the species & their environment is all you need to worry about.
    This trip suits keen photographers with a desire to experience the magnificent wildlife that this region of Spain has to offer; capturing editorial-quality images of a range of both mammal & bird species to treasure for years to come. Places are highly limited to ensure the best experience for every guest, so book early to avoid disappointment.
    Photographable Species: Iberian lynx, egyptian mongoose, european wildcat, golden eagle, imperial eagle, red fox

    Recommended Equipment

    Recommended Camera Equipment

    For this photography holiday, we would recommend that you have available, an array of lenses from an intermediate telephoto lens such as the 100-400mm, which is extremely versatile, through to your longest lens, whether that is a 400mm, 500mm or 600mm. A wide angle would also be useful if you fancy capturing some birds in the environment shots.

    For photographing the wildcats & lynx, we recommend the 300mm & 400mm with the 100-400mm being a good alternative. For the eagles, lens between 400mm - 600mm work best depending on whether you are hoping to capture action or classic portrait shots.

    If you own a lens with an aperture of f/2.8 within the recommended focal length, bring it! These will allow you to focus on your subject faster & will also be useful in low light conditions.

    You should also pack a tripod to help steady your lens, especially when you are out photographing at dawn & dusk.

    Recommended Clothing

    For this photography holiday, the weather can be changeable so we would recommend that you pack layers of thin fleeces or mid shirts & jumpers since you can remove items of clothing as you start to warm up. You don't need to bring camouflage clothes but please do pack neutral coloured clothes so that you blend into the landscape. You should also bring a warm waterproof coat & waterproof trousers in case it rains, so you are covered for all eventualities.

    Silk gloves or a thin pair of thermal gloves with rubber grip on the fingers & palm will help to keep your hands warm. Silk gloves are great for wicking away moisture from your hands, leaving them dry & therefore lovely & warm. Gloves where the fingers are cut away so that you can operate your camera with them on would be a good substitute.

    Don't forget to pack sensible waterproof walking boots & a warm hat to protect your head in case it is windy.
