p.1 #1 · Tree Eagles, Autumn flight and Fishing with Flood Gates Open (6)


C&C welcome

This first picture was on a foggy day. Almost full frame







Here's lunch







Some autumn tree flying







Although Hurricane Sandy did not flood the local pond and downstream river as much as heavy rains did last year, I thought these pictures appropriate post-Sandy to see that Bald Eagles can, and do fish in white water. If you thought they wouldn't be active, you would be wrong. These were taken with about 25 or so flood gates open (I forget the exact number) after heavy rains after Thanksgiving last year.

These are pretty massive crops so I'm not worried about details, etc. This is only to show that when you got to eat - you got to eat.

First pic the eagle lines up lunch. That white water is way over his head and there is much debris in the water.







This is TWO minutes later, not the same burst. But, you get the point. Second pic he goes deep - real deep - VERY DEEP. In fact, it looks like he is about totally under water.







Fear not, he gets lunch.

I think this is the first time I have seen a shot of an eagle taking a hike on the rivers bottom! Wow I had no idea!!! Love the pose and exposure of 2, the background of 3 is to die for. Great set!!!

Thank you all. Yes, eagles can swim too. I've seen one just swimming around like a duck! Weird.
