Raptor Portraits

Recently, I had an opportunity to visit the raptor project’s show at Quinta Mazatlan World Birding Center. If you ever get a chance to visit Johnathon Wood and his birds of prey, it’s a show worth watching. Mr. Wood is a wildlife rehabilitator and works with raptors that have been injured, nurturing them until they are able to be re-released into the wild. Unfortunately, some birds injuries are too severe, which would prevent them from being able to survive on their own. However, Mr. Wood provides for these birds and travels across the country educating and entertaining the public.

Until next time, keep shooting. –KEVIN

Eagle Owl. Canon 7D | 70-200/2.8 @ 200mm | Kenko 20 + 32 mm extension tube. The background was horrible behind this bird so I came in tight for an extreme facial portrait. This bird’s eyes are bigger and more efficient than a human’s.
