#FrameItFriday (week 13, season 4)
Another Friday, another blog. I thought I'd surprise you all about me and my walking buddy going to the Canadian Raptor Conservancy but I told you all LAST week I was going there. What the heck will I talk about with you this week? I swear this happens to me every single Friday. Anyhow, "focus" Heather.
Well, yesterday, around these parts was absolutely perfect, the temp was bang on, very little wind, sunshine with a dash of haze. A perfect day to shoot bird photos! If you check on my page you'll see a sneak shot and also a bunch of videos.....go and check them out.
I took 863 photos in two hours yesterday. That is the most I've taken in over a year. It will take me a while to go through them all so I'll be posting Birds of Prey shots daily over the next week or so.
I have to say this again for those of you who are new to my page.....unless I say otherwise the Birds of Prey shots I'll be posting were shot at the Canadian Raptor Conservancy in Vittoria, Ontario. I've been a number of times throughout the years in different seasons, testing out lenses, practicing my bird in flight shots and learning about the birds. We pay for a 2 hour session with a group of like minded individuals (Covid rules apply and we all wore masks etc.) The only reason why I'm mentioning this is because a couple of years ago I had some troll, miserable git, grumpy fart lecture me about how "you didn't take these out in the wild, you're misleading people"....yada, yada, yada. It pissed me off because under every photo I posted I stated where it was taken. He just couldn't be bothered to read it, or couldn't read or somebody pooped on his corn flakes that day and he took it out on me. Whatever. Obviously it still bothers me to this day because I ended up blocking the guy. It's stupid I know and childish but he reamed me out in a DM and I said "cheer up buttercup". He didn't like that. Oopsala. Block.
I'll miss going to that place but I hope I retain enough of what I learned over the years from going there to finding all the birds of prey down in my new neighbourhood. If you're interested in raptors, click on the link to their site above and book a session. James and Shauna are the best, a wealth of knowledge and are amazing caregivers to their birds.
I'm 35 days and 1 final shoot away from leaving B.town. Looking forward to putting the banana boats in some water soon. I hope you all are keeping safe and staying healthy. Let me know in the comments below what you're hoping to do now since the warm weather seems to be arriving (I hope I didn't just jinx us)
Peace, love and kumbaya Heather
P.S.-the bird's name is Oliver
