Yellow Billed Kite

DSC_0957

My daughter and I participated in a photography day at SC Center for Birds of Prey this past weekend.  The center provides medical care to injured birds of prey and shorebirds as well as promoting education and research in environmental elements that affect the birds.  

Along with about 20 other photographers, we were able to see 15 different birds up close and personal.  The staff were wonderful answering all questions and helping us get that perfect shot…rather lots of shots!  I’ve just started going through them and I’ll post more but I couldn’t wait to get started!

Photo Challenge – Temporary

This week we are asked to share a photo that says “temporary” to us.

The roseate spoonbills have been visiting the lowcountry the past few weeks on their way south for the winter.  You can’t miss them – pink feathers with a large, flat, spoon-shaped bill which they use to feed by sweeping their bill back and forth.

The arrival of the spoonbills always creates excitement among all “birders” and the topic of all conversation revolves around the “spoonies”.  The weather’s getting colder so our “temporary” residents will be leaving soon but I think I can say for all that the welcome mat is always out.

Five Minutes – Regular Random

Desley Jane hosts Regular Random each week.  The rules are:

Choose an object or scene and shoot for five minutes using different angles and lighting and try not to interfere with it once it’s set up.  I confess – I have problems sticking to five minutes but I did with this post.

These are photos of my home office where momaskedmeforarecipe.com, photographyinpearls.com and photographyinpearls.photoshelter.com come together.  On my desk is an encyclopedia of birds and one for flowers (I really want to know what I’ve just captured!) as well as several photography books and different cookbooks.  (The flower on the monitor is a plumeria.)

Trust me – it’s much neater than my “real world” desk!
