I love the camaraderie that is created as we are shooting these guys, so much that I wake hearing things like.... "OVERHEAD"... or "IN FROM THE RIGHT"!!!!!! So much fun and as I go through my images that fun is remembered dearly!
Thank You All!!! Herb, Mike, Rob & Amy, Nikon John, Nick, Rod, and everyone else that I may have forgotten!

I was fortunate to photograph S/3 in 2012 at the dam. I have been in contact with the wildlife biologist (Tom French) who banded her as a nestling. He sends out e-mails to keep the people who report her up to date on her location.

I apologize ahead of time for the watermark.

November 2012.

After hearing President Obama on the radio this afternoon, quoting Ben Franklin on the subject of eagles and turkeys, I had to investigate and I found this:

http://www.smithsonianmag.com/arts-culture/american-myths-benjamin-franklins-turkey-and-the-presidential-seal-6623414/?no-ist

While researching our recent article about the Seal of the President of the United States, I came across a few couple myths about the National Emblem that required a little more investigation.

First up, the idea that Benjamin Franklin, in his infinite wisdom and wit, wanted the National Bird to be the turkey. According to the United States Diplomacy Center, this myth is completely false (though I’ll dive into the murkier parts of that myth in a moment). The center points to the fact that Franklin’s proposal for the Great Seal was devoid of birds completely and suggest that the idea was propagated, in part, by a 1962 illustration for the cover of the New Yorker by artist Anatole Kovarsky, who imagined what the Great Seal of the United States might look like if the turkey did become our national emblem (above image). However, while it’s hard to imagine that overstuffed, flightless bird on our currency and on the President’s lectern instead of on our dinner table, there is actually a bit of truth to this rumor.

The Franklin Institute, addressing what I’m sure is their favorite question about one of the most complex and interesting men to ever live in this country, excerpts a letter from Franklin to his daughter, in which he does in fact question the choice of the eagle, commenting that the selected design looks more like a turkey. Franklin then expounds on the respectability and morality of each bird, which really seems like such a Ben Franklin thing to do:

“For my own part I wish the Bald Eagle had not been chosen the Representative of our Country. He is a Bird of bad moral Character. He does not get his Living honestly. You may have seen him perched on some dead Tree near the River, where, too lazy to fish for himself, he watches the Labour of the Fishing Hawk; and when that diligent Bird has at length taken a Fish, and is bearing it to his Nest for the Support of his Mate and young Ones, the Bald Eagle pursues him and takes it from him.

With all this injustice, he is never in good case but like those among men who live by sharping & robbing he is generally poor and often very lousy. Besides he is a rank coward: The little King Bird not bigger than a Sparrow attacks him boldly and drives him out of the district. He is therefore by no means a proper emblem for the brave and honest Cincinnati of America who have driven all the King birds from our country…

“I am on this account not displeased that the Figure is not known as a Bald Eagle, but looks more like a Turkey. For the Truth the Turkey is in Comparison a much more respectable Bird, and withal a true original Native of America… He is besides, though a little vain & silly, a Bird of Courage, and would not hesitate to attack a Grenadier of the British Guards who should presume to invade his Farm Yard with a red Coat on.”

I'm sure S3 - and all the contributors to this forum - would take umbrage but of course there are elements of truth.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.



(edited to remove the plug for the Smithsonian magazine which I had not noticed when I posted - sorry about that)

Sometimes when spending the day photographing wildlife out in the cold and the elements.... What it is really all about is the people that you meet!!! That is what really makes it all worthwhile! Mike, you certainly bring light to our day! Ho! Ho! Ho!
