About Me:

My name is Cryss. I'm from Lititz, Pennsylvania.

I am an amateur animal photographer. Animals are my life, I spend all my time around them. I am working on getting my falconry permit and I help my boyfriend do educational bird of prey and falconry shows at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire and The Castle of Muskogee in Oklahoma.

My Art:

Peruvian Harris Hawk 5 by EdgedFeather Autumn 2 by EdgedFeather Congo 3 by EdgedFeather American Kestrel by EdgedFeather Roadrunner 2 by EdgedFeather

I am mainly a photographer. I have spent most of my time lately trying to improve. Most of my photos are of animals, especially birds of prey. I have a Canon 50D, a 55-250mm lens, and a 100-400mm lens.

I also occasionally draw and paint with watercolors, but I haven't been doing a whole lot beside photography lately.

First Hunt!

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 28, 2014, 2:37 PM
So, after several years of waiting, I have finally managed to go on my first real hunt!

We took Grace our female Harris Hawk out yesterday but didn't find anything. We decided to take her out again today and figured that since today was super windy, she would have a chance to learn how to handle herself in the wind. We didn't see anything so we decided just to head back. 

As we got into one of the clearings where we started I kicked up a rabbit right next to the tree line. Grace tried to go after it, but she just didn't have enough time to catch up to it and it ran into some really heavy brush in the trees. I decided to try to walk around behind the area to try to flush it back out. I had no luck finding the rabbit. But I heard Grace's bells ringing and turned to see her land next to me on the brush pile I was on.

She was looking into the brush very intensely, so I figured she must have seen the rabbit again. I did everything I could to get it out. Grace moved along the brush a couple of times but I couldn't get it to come out. We decided to try to move on. I walked behind her and we called for her a few times to follow but she was very focused on something. I kept walked down the brush trying to find a spot to get out when she blew past me and crashed into a small gap in the brush!

We were really hoping it was that rabbit we saw, but it turned out to just be a big rat of some kind. I was really disappointed about what she caught, but it was really awesome to watch her in action and watch her switch from just watching us to really looking and figuring out what we were out there to do!

I cannot wait to go out with her again and I am really looking forward to finally getting that first rabbit with her! :)
