p.1 #1 · Eagle Day Two and Marsh in Spring Bloom


Yesterday I tried to find a better position to get closer to the eagles. I was "hiding" in the grass shown in shot 1.

The first shot is from day one, but it will give you an idea of the terrain that they were hunting. It is wet marsh , water shallow in a lot of places. This, by the way, is where the harriers like to hunt as well. Saw them again, but too far away for any good shots, still thrilled to see the gray ghost again.

Shots 2 and 3 are yesterday, a bit closer , but lousy light, but what are you going to do. It is what it is.

Shots 4 and 5 are only about 3 miles away and look at the difference . Spring is in bloom in certain places of the marsh. I wish I could do more justice to just how beautiful the marsh and its variety can be.

I am very new to all of this especially finding raptors. However, it amazes me that in all my many visits to these places, I have never seen another photographer. I rarely ever see another person, maybe the occasional fisherman or retriever trainer, but never a photographer.

Help me get better with your nits and crits, please.

Hope you enjoy,

Birdie

First time he lands in a tree not surround by branches and that is the light I have !






Fly over






Spring has sprung






I wish I could do justice to the beauty in the marsh.

#3 looks great and #2 reminds me of pole vaulting

I like the dichotomy of color and "life" in the last between the bare, dark trees and colorful wild flowers.

How I wish springtime was upon us here. Congrats on the eagles and to be a solitary photographer is icing on the cake. I cherish days like those which are few and far between. Funny how you find new places that were under your nose for all along. Enjoy the tranquility while it lasts.

I like the last pic. Colorful but spooky

Be glad there are no hordes around.

These are excellent. I shot my first hawk and another eagle yesterday and they were far...look like tiny crows flying around.

You will get your Eagle shots Good efforts pay good dividends Birdie

I like the last shot a lot
#5 I think changing your angle lower to this singled out flower would have isolated it better and offered more creativity in the shot..........just my thoughts........

Have fun and you are likely to have an Eagle in very close in your 'near' future

Love the last shot. Being the only person around is what I call a bonus. Nothing I like better than hearing only the sounds of Nature without traffic noise or people yapping. I recently sat in a blind for 4 hours and only one eagle appeared. Just as he landed, loud voices could be heard from a couple of hikers and scared the eagle off before I could get a single shot.

Looks like you're doing good with the eagles, Birdie. I like the last landscape; good color and exposure. It is an inviting image. You mention a desire to get better at showing these beautiful places-like everything else it takes practice as I'm sure you know. A good habit when heading out to shoot birds is to leave early and take advantage of the landscapes in a variety of light conditions. You can shoot the land long before there is enough light for birds.
