Headed out in the kayak this morning on a Greenie hunt. I was just getting to the area where I usually find Greenies this time of year when I saw something rather large land on a log boom a few hundred yards away. I immediately knew what it was, I used meet up with and adult BE in this very spot for years. That bird was hit by a bus last summer, its mate found a new mate this past Spring and this guy is one off the offspring. My heart jumped when I saw him, I am full of optimism that this bird and I will be seeing a lot of each other over the coming years. Here are a few teasers, I hate to admit how many frames I took! Most of these are full frame, just cropped a bit for presentation.

1 not the best head angle but I do believe it is my first BE nose hole!!

Tim, this is almost like the Phoenix. I can only imagine how you felt, almost like a doting uncle. I hope you have many moe years of photo ops with this great raptor. Oh, don't chain it up like you did its parent .
Pretty good trade eh..a few baddies for one great baldie!

It is quite an opportunity to spend this much time at this wonderful low angle with an Eagle Tim. I still have your morning fog images implanted in my mind with the Eagle, that will stay a life time buddy

BE with a nose hole, now that is an accomplishment I am partial to #1 for the warmth of the image, I really like that pose of #3 a lot. How bout #4, mid-chest a single white feather............my guess this is a pretty special bird my friend and one that you will spend a very very long time with in a very special bond, and that is all good

I have an overall observation, as we become more proficient at rendering details, sometimes I wonder if we remove a bit of the essence of the image? What I am trying to say is that the Eagle is such a proud and powerful bird that allowing some areas to have less detail (more shadow) and forcing our eyes to 'their' eyes can be a more powerful statement. That being said, I'd give a weeks vacation for a day out like this.................

A great inspirational encounter Tim, I am happy for you buddy!

What a wonderful continuation from that sad occurrence with the last BE that used to hang out there for you. Thanks for sharing these Tim. I know you just shat your shorts when you saw it! Nice job on the nosehole! #3 is my pick from this set. And don't tell me you took 20 Gigs of this guy didn't ya?
