Poker Hand Bald Eagles

Very cold again here in Chama, New Mexico. 5 degrees and fog. When I found these 3 eagles sitting together in the snag I thought to myself "A Poker Hand Of Eagles" 3 of a kind.

As the sun was starting to burn off the fog



Where they were with a insert of a closer look at them



A pretty good poker hand is 3 of a kind



About 20 miles from the lake a eagle by himself



Another one by himself. A little frost left on the tree. This is my favorite of this bunch. I call it "Eagle Eye".

Good going Roger.....super shots!! I like them all and your favorite is my favorite.

Looks like a winning combination you got there. Ya know, some of you have Eagles that sit in trees and pose so nicely.....I have Eagles that fly low....150 yds away:sad:

VP thank you for the nice comment and for taking the time to look.

In other parts of the valley I see them but they never are close enought for me to get a photo. It is time for you to get lucky and have one land about 10 yards away and stay there for a hour or so. Good Luck.
