Raptor Rehabilitation | Horizon Wings

It’s always a treat when you are up close and personal with an animal that stops and you in your tracks.  There is something raw and beautiful about a wild animal.  It’s been a while, but as soon as I was within arms reach of these raptors I was floored, these were impressive creatures.  Purpose built and all engineered specifically to dominate their own swath of the animal kingdom.  The size variation notwithstanding, each owl, hawk, and eagle commanded the space it occupied with ease and confidence.  It was awesome.

Horizon Wings is a rehabilitation center for birds of prey with the goal of re-releasing these birds back into the wild, while educating the public at the same time.  Mary-Beth, owner, caretaker, raptor whisperer, and all around wonderful woman, along with the help of volunteers helps nurse these raptors back to health so they can once again thrive in the wild.  The majority of the birds that Horizon Wings takes in are generally injured from cars, planes and other unfortunate interactions with mankind.

Below are two of my favorite images from the shoot we did with Horizon Wings.  You can check out the rest here.  Horizon Wings is a non-profit, if you are an educator, you can reach out to them for information about their educational programs.

Ik heb Herman 2 keer ‘ontmoet’ De eerste keer toen ik vrijwilliger was in een buurthuis in Weert. Ik was 15 jaar en ik vond het maar een gekke vent en een arrogante ‘L’.De 2e keer woonde ik net in A’dam. Overdag liep ik een cafe in aan de Prinsengracht en stond een klein mannetje midden in de doorgang naar buiten te staren. Moest even uit zijn trance komen om mij door te laten. ‘s Avonds kwam ik weer in de Jordaan en was er een filmcrew bezig om filmopname te maken voor Cha Cha en realiseerde ik me wie dat mannetje was geweest ‘s morgens….

third problem was that I was doing too much research for my articles. Research is great, but too much of a good thing is usually a bad thing, isn’t it? Sometimes, it’s best to be

Canine Collective |Breeds of the AKC

188.  The current total number of breeds in the AKC.  77.  The total number of breeds we have photographed.  111 left to track down.

This is the Canine Collective.  Our largest and certainly our most ambitious project.  Growing up I had a massive poster on my wall titled “Dogs of the World”, if my memory serves me right, I picked up this bad boy at a local dog food/supply store that has since gone out of business.  I would look at all the dogs on the poster and think; “Man!  There are so many crazy looking dogs in the world”.  Well, 20 years later I thought; “What if I tackled this poster myself?  What if I photographed all the dogs in the world, that would be a wild idea”.  That’s it.  That’s the story, and with the first 77 dogs photographed we are well on our way.  Below is a small sampling of some of the dogs, the rest can be viewed here.
