December 19 — Eagle season has arrived

The onset of cold weather definitely has its drawbacks, like having to feed the wood furnace.  The up side, however, is the arrival of the eagles.  We’ve had some great days for observation lately, with low temperatures and sunny skies, perfect for photography.    I try to get mostly action/behavior shots these days.

So close…

This is very close to the image I am trying to capture.  If I could get the lighting and focus right, it would be perfect.

Crisp.

I have an entire sequence of this one, all in sharp focus.

Fish Face

I think the fish is less likely to be stolen if it’s carried in the beak.

Swing and a miss!

Sometimes even a dead fish gets away.

If you click through, there are a couple more I haven’t posted here.
