    To have only been photographing for a year I would say your talent is quite good!

    These are once again top notch. Very sharp and good composition.
     
  3. Thanks Andy

    They are about as good as I've got, I think.

    I just love that baby

    Beautiful again

    You need to make a coffee table book of this story of Missy

    I think I would buy one.
    I feel like I have been there
    Thank You
     
  5. Thanks Gale

    I believe I will make a Powerpoint slideshow with a narrative and give it to my kids. I took 472 pictures this morning it will be weeks just sorting through them

  7. I take over 100 a day and edit about 10 the rest are just in RAW and almost don't get looked at. I have to go through them 1 by 1 when time is right.
     
  8. Comparing Eagles

    Hey, Gary,

    Thought you'd like to see the only eagle I'm able to photograph!
    I captured it in it's nesting location, the sacristy of our church. The surroundings are not quite so picturesque as yours, but it's warm and comfortable and I can get up real close! LOL!

    D200, Nikkor 85/1.4, f/2.8, 1/60 second, ISO 100 :biggrin:

    I know it's not quite up to your standards, but I'm doing my best... really!

    This model was crafted by one of the leaders of our Boy Scout Troop 1666. They use it during some of the Courts of Honor and when presenting Eagle Scout awards. Probably as close as I'm going to get to the real thing.

    One again, your shots are just wonderful. And you're giving these birds a real personality. It reminds us that while they are "just birds," they are as individual as humans and have real character traits. It's great fun watching them through your lens.

    Thanks and God bless.

  9. Hey Doug Thanks

    I like your Eagle, great color, pose and detail.

    After 5 months of living a couple hours a day with them it is amazing to me how they communicate and care for each other.
     
  10. WOW, Gary! I think Missy is gonna fly the nest before long! She's beautiful! I hope we get to see her change her coloring - I'm amazed that the bald eagle is all brown when young like that - when does she get her white feathers?
     
  11. Thanks Dianne

    She won't have White feathers until she is 4 or 5 years old
