I'd like to thank Kirk Payne for some of these pictures. He is an instructor and naturalist who works with Quarry Hill Nature Center. He is also a falconer who is sponsoring several members of Lena's family. There were several people along with very nice cameras. Kirk was kind enough to share some of his pics and gave permission to post to my blog.
Over the last couple years, since Richard comes along just about all the time, and I rely on him to take pictures and GoPro clips, I forget to make sure I document our adventures. I failed to get a group shot of all the people that came along. It was quite a gathering. Special thanks to Janelle, for helping me get private land permission. Also, thanks to Janelle's friend Joe, and his neighbor Mr. Zimmermann, for letting us tromp on their land.
I posed with Sassy.
After returning to the cars she's posing with the family hawk.
Everyone Take A Bow!
We met back with other members of the Club for Bar-B-Que, to hear how the other teams did, and then share the company of those also afflicted with our obsession. It was a really fun day!
