The Block Creek Natural and Turkey Hollow Bed & Breakfast hosted my first March workshop last week. Some of the photographers wanted to try for “strutting” wild turkeys and March is usually the peak of turkey mating season.
Five photographers worked from all of the 5 photo blinds, the B&B’s spacious porch (for hummingbirds) and along Block Creek which flows through the property. Most of the trees were just getting new leaves and the red bud trees were in bloom; blue birds were feeding young, turkeys were strutting, and hummingbirds were arriving daily. Some of our images were captured at a nearby historic farm house; we even photographed the neighbor’s horse.
Here are some of my photos from the week of March 21-24: click on an image to enlarge and sharpen it for better viewing.
