4 Back at College



I'm sorry that I was unable to update my blog for a while. I really wanted to but I have not been able to get my mac laptop on the school's network. So I finally decided to download some software on my other laptop so I could work on my photographs. These photographs were all from the last week I had at home before I went back to college.


I had a lot of fun on my break photographing Bald Eagles.  It is always my favorite time of year when the eagles are around.  I do have another break in a few weeks and I have heard that there are even more eagles there than when I was home.  So I am really looking forward to it.


I hope you enjoy the photographs and I will try and update again soon.

0 Immature Bald Eagles


The last few days have been excellent for bald eagle sightings.  Today was not the best day but I did see a few eagles.  I have also been seeing plenty of sea gulls, black ducks, and common mergansers.  I also keep seeing a kingfisher in the same spot everyday, but so far he has not been close enough to photograph.  
I’m hoping tomorrow will be a better day.  I only have one week till I go back to college.  So hopefully I will be able to get a few good shots before I head back.  Then I have a break about 4 weeks later.  Which should be prime eagle season where I live. 
I will try and post a couple more photographs within the next few days.  I hope everyone enjoys the photographs.  Feel free to comment on the photographs or leave questions.

0 Lots of Bald Eagles Over the Past Couple Days

It has been a great week for Bald Eagle photographs.  I spend a couple hours every morning out at the lake and the Bald Eagles are everywhere.  I've seen over a dozen Eagles everyday.  Two days ago was a the best day I have had in a long time. The Eagles were feeding and continually hitting the water.  I got a few good shots of them fishing, which are the first flying shots I have gotten in a while.
It is especially challenging for me to get these shots because I'm using a Manual Focus Lens.  On most of the flying photographs I was using my lens at 600mm to make it easier to focus.  Also I didn't need much more focal length than that, because the Eagles were so close.

 I hope you enjoy the Eagle Photographs.  I will be posting more soon.
