The RHC Photography Blog Spot

March 16, 2012  •  1 Comment

Hi everyone! Welcome to my first RHC Photography blog post. To be honest, it's my first blog post of any kind. I suppose I should begin by explaining who we are and what we do. RHC Photography consists of myself, Randy Couch and my wife Heide. We both have a life-long interest in the outdoors, nature and wildlife. We met in Japan while we were both in the U. S. Air Force. We traveled as much as possible, visiting China, South Korea, The Philippines and much of Europe. We now live in northern California where we take advantage of the abundance of photo opportunities along the Pacific Flyway. Join us as, over the next month or two, we bring samples of our photography over to this site.

I would also like to encourage anyone with a love of wildlife to support your local wildlife rehabilitation center. Development continues to encroach on our natural world. This results in encounters between wildlife and humans that often in in harm to the wildlife through no fault of their own. These centers treat these animals to the best of their ability and release them back into the wild whenever possible. Unreleasable animals are often used for educational programs to teach our children and others about the frigility of our natural habitats. If you are a birder, naturalist or just a fan of wildlife, volunteering your time at these centers reaps great rewards. As an avid birder I have had the opportunity to see many species of birds (and mammals) much more closely than I could ever get, or should ever get, in the wild. In many of these centers you will get hands-on experience treating injured animals and birds. If your schedule does not alow you to volunteer personally, please consider these organizations for your charitable contributions. Most of them operate on donations only and they truly make a difference even with miniscule operating budgets. Okay, I'm off my soapbox for now but I will occasionally mention these organizations in the future. I have been personally involved with a few of them and the experience has left me humbled.
