Armed with out cameras and big ass lenses, we set out to take a few morning shots of wildlife at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal and Wildlife Refuge in Aurora, CO. The refuge is FREE. Woo Fucking Hoo! We managed to catch a few shots of Blue Herons, Egrets, bunny rabbits and even a fisherman (extremely rare in the wild).
Finally, due to the ease of the COVID19 restrictions in Colorado, we were able to attend a photo workshop for photographing birds of prey. Mike's Camera in Denver, CO puts this annual event on their calendar and we quickly signed up. Hawk Quest is a non profit company that takes in injured and sick birds of prey and nurses them back to health. Unfortunately due to their injuries, they will never be released into the wild. Both Michelle and I have tried our best to get close to the various eagle nests in our immediate area without success. Today, success was made, photographed and logged.
