Default Bald Eagle (NO shadow)

Bald Eagle (NO shadow)

I had to go back to the lake and try again for a Bald Eagle with out a shadow on his head. I could of stayed home in the lazy-boy and watched soap operas, but NO I headed for the woods. Some times life is tuff.

Wonderful images of a magnificent bird. I have a soft spot for any of the raptors. Living in the Niagara peninsula of Ontario I am fortunate to see many different species, hawks, vultures, etc. as they migrate both spring and fall. The peninsula is a convenient shortcut across the Great Lakes.

Very few eagles in this area but I have seen them in New York state near the Adirondacks and out in British Columbia.

I like the close-ups as well as the last image with the close-up in the inset.

Regards

I am lucky to live here in Chama, New Mexico. We have lots of wild critters year-around.

I was thinking the same way. Not a hard choice.

All great, as usual, but the framing by the branches in the first one is something else. A good eye for the unusual.

What a great series. We are starting to have more sightings of Bald Eagles in the Nashville, TN area, hopefully one day I will get some great shots like these!
