    From the looks of the shadow, it appears this guy was first communicating with the tower and then lining up the landing. :D

    Tower -- I'm not quite lined up...

    43592448.

    Finally on the line -- Landing Gear coming down...

    43592450.

    And here's the beautiful bird before takeoff...

    43592442.

    I never get tired of photographing this guy even though I see him almost every day.

    Excellent shots Don. I got about 500 shots of these guys today, but the weather was horrible (foggy and overcast) so I don't know if I got any decent shots yet or not.

    Frank -- Thanks for the comments! I'll look forward to seeing some of yours posted soon -- despite the bad weather, I'm sure you'll have some good ones from what I've seen of your posts.

    Thanks for the feedback, Sven! I like the way these birds stand so gracefully around the edge of the pond when they're not feeding, so I like the last one also.

    Thanks, Gordon! I have to do something to keep the shots interesting with this guy since I get so many chances to shoot him. :D :D The one shot I don't have yet is of him catching a fish. I see it frequently, but he's always in the wrong spot (right behind my fence where the angle is bad and I'd scare him away). I'll just keep trying!

    Thanks, Keith! I was shooting at one of the worst times of the day with the sun almost directly overhead, so the shadow was a nice bonus.
