Some reviews of our wolf workshop…

I woke up the next day saying….”I want to pet a wolf!” It was an amazing experience!” Julia

“Wow, I can’t believe how cool this workshop was! I learned a lot about my camera and where to set things, but I really loved having the wolves literally, right at my feet. Thank you so much Katydid!” Erin

“Thank you for getting this workshop together. Your structure was perfect. My daughter and I learned about the wolves habits, saw them in action and had our pictures taken by Kathy and they are beautiful. Love you Katydid!” Michelle
