Summary

For more than fifty years, Charlie Hohorst hunted ducks in the marshes of South Louisiana. Now, still an avid outdoorsman, he prefers shooting waterfowl and other birds living in or passing through the state's wetland areas with his camera. Wings of Paradise presents the debut collection of Hohorst's spectacular photographs of the birds of Louisiana's wetlands. Organized by type as shore birds, raptors, woodland songbirds, and migratory ducks and geese, the images portray dozens of different species engaged in a variety of engaging activities, from swooping and skimming to soaring, preening, nesting, romancing, arguing, and catching prey. para; Noted food writer Marcelle Bienvenu complements the photographic feast by reflecting on South Louisiana's cherished hunting rituals and sharing twenty-four favorite duck and goose recipes from the area. Wings of Paradise is a visual delight for families, birders, naturalists, conservationists, sportsmen all who appreciate the natural beauty of South Louisiana
