Birds of Prey in South Africa

One of my favourite subjects to photograph are the birds of prey. They are so graceful and not always easy to get in front of your lens. They are also at peril and are threatened by many factors where man plays again a big role in their plight. The raptors are a growing endangered species and their habitat is shrinking. It is only through education, care and rehabilitation of these birds that we can save them from extinction. There are however people that dedicate their lives to conserve and care for these gracious birds. I had the privilege to visit such a place and meet these hero┬┤s who take care of these magnificent hunter. If you are in the area please support the Birds of Prey centre and go and have a look at the great work that these people do.
