Bald Eagle/Eagles

Discussion in 'Birds' started by cybertec69, May 17, 2018.

  1. A few from today. He was initially perched on a big oak tree, was spooked by some people in the park, saw him fly off into the thicket, followed him and finally found him, shooting him behind all the brush was not easy, heck sneaking up to him without him noticing was a job in itself.

    Super shots! I went out looking for eagles today, but struck out. Jeff
     
  4. These are nice images. 4 is awesome, but would you consider removing the branches that enter the frame? (Upper left and lower right)
     
  5. Thanks Jeff, I was not planning on seeing one that day, nature is unpredictable, just keep going out and you never know what surprises the day might bring.
     
  6. Thanks Bobby, I was thinking the same thing, when I have some time I will remove them.
