Friday after Corky finished at Chic Salon we headed down to the ponds to see what critters were hanging out on and around the ponds and it proved to be a delightful experience. When I first got out of the van there was a Bald Eagle cruising the far ponds and although I got a few shots of him, he was too far away to get him even with 400mm + of lens. I got some very nice shots of blue bills, mallards and a blue heron and I headed back to the van to show the results to Corky. As we were looking through them I glanced out at the ponds and saw what looked like a very large blue heron headed my way; decided to get out and get a few shots of him ¡K thing was that it was not a heron at all but a Golden Eagle. The Golden Eagle is the largest of predators on wings with wing spans that can reach over nine feet. This one appeared to have a span of more than six feet and was beautiful to behold. Not sure what happened to his tail feathers, but he appears to have narrowly missed some catastrophe. This is only the third one I have seen around here and it was a treat.
Yesterday and today saw a wondrous change in the weather and it has snowed heavily all day; hoping for some sun tomorrow so I can go out and get some good shots ¡K we shall see. Below are some links where I have images stored; the newest is my gallery on photoshop.com, Lots more to upload and will do so as I get time.
