A Vote of Inspiration

It's been a while since I've blogged about my photographic exploits, but not because there's been nothing to say.  My wife and I started a new venture early last winter which has given us a new direction in which to focus our efforts and what a fulfilling experience it has been.

Last November, we began a project we termed "Feathered Hope". Our goal was to find a way to give back to something we both enjoyed - wild bird photography.  That's when we turned our attention toward Marge Gibson and her amazing non-profit, Raptor Education Group, Inc. (REGI).   Marge's passion runs so deep she's given her entire life to the birds.  She is a world renowned avian rehabilitation biologist who has truly defined the field.  We are so very fortunate to live only a stone's throw from this amazing woman.  REGI is one of the premiere rehabilitation facilities dedicated to native wild bird species, especially eagles, in the entire world and for those that have the privilege of knowing Marge, that's no surprise.

We recently had the honor of documenting a summary of her incredible story in her nomination for the 2014 Eagle Rare Life Award.  This prestigious award offers a $40,000 grand prize and much deserved recognition to the non-profit whose story most represents the "rare life" theme.

We would love to introduce you to Marge via her nomination which you can read, vote on and then share with friends and family at    If you are as inspired as we are by her work, help us take up the cause of voting daily (1 vote per IP every 24 hours) and asking those close to you to do the same.

Thank you.
