Default Wild Photo Day

At Hawk Creek, the local wildlife rehab center. They open the doors for photographers every year for full access to photograph their animals. This is the 2nd year I've gone. Here are a couple shots:

Golden Eagle


Northern Goshawk if I'm not mistaken


Albino Burmese Python


Turkey Vulture


Ocelot


And here are my others: Wild Photo Day

Thanks simowills, it turned out alright considering I'm not that good with BIF shots.

Looks like some fine "fruits" of a great day at the rehab center.

PS - If you are ever visiting here in East Tennessee, be sure to let me know so you can photo some of our park's captive raptors. (We just got a new GH Owl, will post his photos once we've calmed him down a bit...)

Thanks mole,
I certainly will take you up on that offer if we ever make it down to Tennessee. Your photos certainly make me wish I would visit, but it's just not on the agenda for us right now.
