The last of the eagle images for you today from my Friday shoot. As I said in earlier posts pickings were pretty slim with only three eagles in the area.
This little guy flew by my lens so I ripped off some images of him. This is the only one I caught the entire bird. Sorry I don’t know the name of this species.
The last image I took was of this eagle sitting in what is called “The feeding trees.” For some reason you can get up close and personal with them and they won’t fly away. Things were so desperate on Friday that three of us were photographing this guy at the same time. 🙂
That’s it for today. Weather doesn’t sound like it’s going to be a good photography day so I probably will just take some more lessons.
Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
You had a pretty good outcome for just having three eagles at L&D #14 last Friday.
The other bird is a male Common Merganser. They move south or north with the edge of the ice, which wasn’t far away from the dam. I had some good luck with them about a year ago. http://www.exnerimages.net/oldblog/4632
Last Saturday I saw them too but couldn’t get close enough.
Hi Andreas. Thank you. Well you’re bound to get something after standing there for 5 hours. It was a miserable day weather wise but anytime you have a camera in your hand is a good day. 🙂
