Anne’s challenge to us this week is to photograph wildlife close to home.
The Center for Birds of Prey in Awendaw, South Carolina rescues wounded and sick birds of prey. They offer Photography Days several times throughout the year which allows unfettered views of the birds in natural surroundings.
Several years ago, my daughter and I attended and had four hours to photograph the birds and take a tour of the Center.
There were owls….
and a tawny eagle.

These birds caught my attention..great images. Anita
I’ve been to the center several times Gina and it’s fantastic – as are your images! They do wonderful work there and I love their special days for photographers. So glad you chose to feature them! And thanks for joining us this week!
Vivid and beautiful captures of these birds. Places like The Center are so interesting to visit and truly learn what makes the birds unique. We have a place similar nearby, but to have a photography day is fun. Brilliant photos and enjoyable read.
Amazing photos of these fine birds Gina! The owls are exceptional. Thanks for sharing them with us and joining in this challenge.
Wowww. Beautiful photos, beautiful birds! Excellent.
Beautiful shots, all of them. I love the feathers of a kestrel
