Game Cameras: Hawk Edition

“Without the soaring birds, without the great forests, the free-flowing streams, the sight of the clouds by day, and the stars by night, we become impoverished in all that makes us human.” -Thomas Berry, The Great Work

Thomas Berry, John Muir, Aldo Leopold, Stephen Kellert, Richard Louv—-They all wrote about our obligations as humans to never loose the awe of our natural surroundings.  A simple camera in the wild reminds us how that awe can be refreshed and maintained.

We comb through 12,000 photos and try to get just the best.  These pictures capture that rare moment in film, such as a hawk diving for its prey, that goes by in a nanosecond.

At anywhere between 12 to 16 pounds, it’s a wonder a turkey ever reaches flight.  Not a graceful landing either…but they do it none the less.
