p.1 #1 · Mother's Day at the Eagle Nest


Yesterday I confirmed that once again the local nest has 3 eggs. Today one of those three eggs had hatched just in time for Mother's Day. Only managed one shot showing the little eaglet. I have cropped in to 100% to show the little guy.




1) One day old

  Canon EOS-1D X    EF600mm f/4L IS II USM +2x III lens    1200mm    f/8.0    1/1600s    1250 ISO    0.0 EV  






2) Dad watching the nest from nearby

  Canon EOS-1D X    EF600mm f/4L IS II USM +2x III lens    1200mm    f/8.0    1/1600s    1250 ISO    0.0 EV  






3) Watching dad approach the nest

  Canon EOS-1D X    EF600mm f/4L IS II USM +2x III lens    1200mm    f/8.0    1/1600s    1250 ISO    0.0 EV  






4) A new stick arrives

  Canon EOS-1D X    EF600mm f/4L IS II USM +2x III lens    1200mm    f/8.0    1/1600s    1250 ISO    0.0 EV  






5) The parents

The third and fifth are my favorites but the first showing that itty bitty raptor to be is pretty damn cool....you probably could use a tiny bit of noise reduction and and not lose too much IQ.
Pretty jealous that you have access to see this!

Thanks everyone for the comments. You will all be seeing a lot more from this nest over the next few months. It should be fun once all 3 have hatched and mom won't be sitting on top of them all the time.
