Photo of the Day – August 11, 2017



An adult Harris Hawk delivers food to its dependent fledgling. The young hawk is the one on the right, having just arrived to retrieve its meal. Photographed at Lost Dutchman State Park in the Superstition Mountains east of Phoenix, AZ. While I lived in AZ many years ago I loved hiking in those mountains as often as possible. It wasn’t until 2015 that I returned as a wildlife photographer. During that trip my eyes were opened to a new adventure as I discovered all the beautiful birds and mammals I hadn’t noticed decades before. I’m very thankful for the new awareness of our natural world that has so fully enriched my life. Through photography and my work at Waterman Conservation Education Center I hope that I can spread that awareness and light a spark for a new generation of young enthusiasts.
