We got an early start to shoot the raptors as Photo Day started about 7AM and we could shoot until 11AM. Though I don’t particularly like getting up and out that early, I do like getting done in time for lunch! There was a slight threat of rain and the skies were overcast but otherwise quite pleasant. Tess and Donna wore their boots thinking they might ward off the chiggers and I guess it was a good thing as some of the areas were muddy from a previous rain.
I do hope more of you will join us at the Blackland Prairie Raptor Center next year to shoot the raptors. It is a great opportunity to get close to these birds! So let me share a few of my favorite photos with you.
And not only did we get to shoot raptors but there were also some wildflowers in bloom!
Following our photo shoot my friend Mary from Capture Dallas joined us for lunch at the Cheesecake Factory. Mary belongs to the Heard Nature Photography Club and primarily shoots nature photos that are absolutely beautiful. To see some of her photos go to:
