Another Fabulous Eagle Day


This is the best year we've had for finding eagles to photograph - plus I have my wonderful camera with 140x zoom - so I get photos I would have missed with my handy little camera that rides around in my pocket all the time.





Right next to the road - in the sunshine - can't ask for more than that.  .  .




Even the back of the head is interesting.  .  .





Wind in the feathers.  .  .



A tree with five eagles in it - it was just too far away to get a spectacular photo - but I loved all the eagles in the branches.





This was as close as I could get - still some great photos of eagles.




While we were eating our lunch in a little park I discovered this Golden Eagle in a tree - waiting for his lunch.




We had seen these two eagles by their nest before, but today was sunny with a bright blue sky, perfect for more photos.


I was hoping for a peek at the young eagles in the nest - but they must still be too small to peek over the edge.






This eagle was in the top of a tree - right next to a house.  Unless the residents heard the eagle call, they probably didn't know that an eagle was sitting almost on top of their house. 






Wind blows the feathers.  .  .


I was lucky enough to catch her shaking and ruffling her feathers.  .  .



It was a very good eagle day.

Wow..these are incredible. I have never seen shots this good of eagles! Oh my if you could please drop over and tell me what type and size zoom lens you used I would really appreciate it!

I am going to purchase some new equipment as soon as possible and I need a really powerful zoom. I have a 400mm now but it won't get sots like these!
