In my opinion, Emma the Barn Owl was the most visually attractive raptor at the Carolina Raptor Center the day we shot and deserves her own mini-gallery.
Still working through photos from the Raptor Centen. It seemed only fair since the raptors were so heavily photographed some of the photographers should end up in front of a camera as well. :-)
Photographing "birds of prey" during an event like PhotoWILD, Carolina Raptor Center, might seem like "shooting sitting ducks" (easy targets), and it may be compared to photographing them in the wild, which I have no experience with, but there's still a bit of challenge to it as I'm still discovered after two such events.
Yesterday, two friends and fellow bloggers, Paul and Tom and I attended the Photo Wild event at the nearby Carolina Raptor Center. Paul posted a very good synopsis of the event so I won't rehash words here about the event.

I'm seeing a lot of signs of spring on my morning walks. It was in the mid-70's F this past Saturday, although it cooled back down the following day.
