Snowing / Bald Eagles

Another day and its snowing again. More practice with NOT good light YIPEEEE. I am using two cameras - Pentax K10D for the background or wide photos and the Mark 3 for the close ups.

For a couple of minutes the sun was trying to break thru the clouds. Didn't happen and it started snowing lightly again. You can see the Eagle in the tree in the right center of the photo.



Wow!!! not to far from the road. Time for a camera wagon stalk. Saves wear and tear on my old legs.



A little closer.



Another look after the camera wagon got me closer.



With a close up



When I got back to the little ridge I found another eagle had showed up. He looked a little nervous so I went for the closer look first.



Another look after a soft crow call.

Roger, I really enjoyed looking at this series. The "other" eagle (pic # 6) does it for me. A wonderful blend of raw elementsthat come together to make this stand out - deadtree andtangle of snow-dusted branchesandsoft background that combine to make the eagledominant.In fact, it reminds me of a Robert Bateman painting called the Air the Forest and the Watch. Well done again. Cheers, Dan

Love the Eagle shots, Roger! Along with the scenery of course. You are doing well with the new setup and look forward to more. Sure wish I had better access to the Eagles that winter around here.
