What may sound like an economic report actually describes my nature photography class Birds of Prey Photo Safari. Last month’s class sold out, so I repeated it this past weekend. Once again, photographers flocked to it.
This past weekend I led a bird photography training session at a local state park. Participants got to see and photograph eagles, falcons, hawks, and owls in natural habitat settings. It is an incredible experience simply being in such close proximity to these magnificent creatures.
No matter what the type of photography I am pursuing at the moment (nature, cityscapes, special events, etc.), a big part of the fun is the thrill of the hunt … tracking down something new. Saturday I had a few hours free (woo-hoo!) and decided to see what new graffiti and street art I might find.
Last month’s raptor photo shoot reached its maximum capacity, and a waiting list developed. To meet the demand for this exciting wildlife photography program, I have scheduled a second Birds of Prey Photo Safari for Saturday, April 27, 2013. Here is your chance to photograph various species of eagles, hawks, and owls in natural settings.
Today I fully intended to finish my Christmas purchases and then wrap everything. I was in the car with my shopping list in hand when I had to stop for a passing train (I was so intent upon finishing my Santa shopping that I took the short cut to the mall. Well, it’s a short cut if there is no train). It was a long train, and after a minute or two I noticed there were a number of cool-looking graffiti pieces on the passing rail cars.
Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge in Delaware is a key stopover for birds migrating north and south along the Atlantic Flyway. Early December is an ideal time to visit, and photographers are likely to see tens of thousands of snow geese, Canada geese, and a variety of migratory waterfowl
On a recent Saturday I took part in a snake survey. The Maryland Department of Natural Resources uses survey information about reptile populations and distributions (as well as data about other fauna) to plan future programs and services. Survey participants took the opportunity to photograph the snakes we encountered … whatever species we discovered and wherever we found them.
