PLYMOUTH â€” Charles Surber, his wife, and their two adult children were sleeping peacefully in their home at 16211 Pretty Lake Road early Sunday morning when they received a rude awakening.

BOURBON â€” Before he became a respected photojournalist at the Gloucester-Matthews Gazette-Journal in Virginia, Walter Becknell was just like any other teenage boy growing up in Bourbon. He took the first step toward what would become a life-defining hobby one day in 1938 when his father told the family about a hawkâ€™s nest he had found in a field. Becknellâ€™s interest in birds began that day, and he started his nature photography a short time laterâ€”taking his first photo with a Brownie box camera in 1939. He was 14 years old.
