    Hi Y'all,

    I bopped down to the Viera Wetlands this morning. As I was driving around I thought of how Kevin hasn't been able to get an eagle shot there yet when I saw this fella hanging out on the observation deck.

    "Golly, I wish Kevin had been here" I thought. I drove a little bit more and I ran into this scene on one of the trees.

    I hung out and took a couple of hundred pictures or so.

    Now I really felt bad that Kevin wasn't with me. The eagle shots did make me feel a bit better though. :biggrin: Sorry Kevin.
     
  2. I'm so mad I could just spit, to coin one of my mom's phrases! :mad:

    It's a good thing I like you Mr. Harry Behret! It does my heart good to think that I was the first thing you thought of when seeing said subject matter! :rolleyes: One of these days, one of these days!

    Beautiful shots, nonetheless! And I still like you, even if you are a mean old man with a big lens! :eek:


    Kindest regards,
    :wink:
     
  3. Oh, and btw, it looks like you've got some dust bunnies on shot #7. Maybe you should spend some more time on equipment upkeep rather than wandering around Viera aimlessly....:tongue:

    {hope you know I'm kidding....just insanely jealous!:wink: }
     
  4. And now that I've had some time to think about it and cool down some, don't talk to me anymore!

    {still kidding}

    Kevin I don't blame ya at all. Its just not fair. I did have a long talk with the eagles and told them I expected an appearance from them on your next visit.

    I know about the dust bunnies. I've been cloning them out of my shots all morning. I'm breaking out the Eclipse and Tec pads now.

    Kevin buddy I've been threating to take down that accursed tree for some time!! :Dizzy: :Unsure: :Angry:

    So anytime your ready for some covert operations, give me a jingle :biggrin: :rolleyes: I'll bring chainsaw and camo paint

    Ok Harry these are some fine Eagles, no they are Rockin!!
    You are a lucky man to be there to catch them and yes truth be known we here are lucky that you share with us!
     
  7. Harry, what great shots. Got to get down there again and get some Eagle shots with you.

    Great shots Harry. I've been over to the dam three straight times looking for our Eagles with no luck, and you get great shot after great shot after great shot. :rolleyes:

    Just a note to Dave -- He didn't give me a jingle either. :tongue:
     
  11. Yes & he has the #
    Yes & he has the #
    Of course he didn't & he has the #. Probably afraid I'd show up hootin' and hollerin' and scare the buggers away!...:biggrin:

    Thanks for the sympathy, Dave! :wink:

    Hey Ben,

    Got you fooled they were on a tree but not THE TREE. In fact THE TREE has been fairly quiet lately. I'm hoping that this is just a temporary slump.

    Thanks.

    Thanks Louie. Hopefully you will be able to make Merritt III and nail some of those eagles.

    The D2h seems to be metering correctly again. I expect it to stop sooner or later. Its just a matter of waiting for the second shoe to drop. Then Nikon and myself will have a serious conversation.

    I would have called Kevin but I realized the possible consequences of such an act. Kevin is about a 40 minute drive away. He would have drove at excessive speeds risking an accident and/or a ticket. I wouldn't do that to the lad. :biggrin:

    Thanks Dave.

    Thank you Frank and I hope your eagle shortage ends soon. If it doesn't I may be able to Fed-ex you one of our surplus eagles if the price is right. :biggrin:
     
  17. I'm beginning to believe you, Gale! :tongue:

    Save your money, Frank, just get a back copy of National Geographic. It's staged....it's all staged!!! :wink:
     
  18. Ok I am calling for a time out. This is just not fair for one person to post so many great shots. Ok time in, keep them coming. Great job by the way.
