This morning I heard a soft hammering sound coming from one of our large front yard trees. I looked up and saw what I believe was a female Pileated Woodpecker drilling away at a branch. She stayed there for awhile giving me enough time grab my camera and take some photos and video.
This raven is one of the non-releasable birds of prey at the Audubon Sharon Center in Sharon, Connecticut.
A recent trip to the farm unfortunately coincided with the harshest part of the day lighting-wise. It’s challenging to take photos when the sun is at its brightest but it can be done. One trick that I like to use is placing the sun either directly above or to the side of my subject.
Below is a link to a good article discussing the benefits of a great adoption photo at your animal shelter.
"What can reduce a pet’s length of stay in your shelter or rescue from 43 days to 14 days? A great adoption photo."
Is your shelter or animal rescue group looking for a professional photographer resource? Please inquire here.
