Boo Boo has become a excellent Eagle Photo Opp alarm. The eagle has been flying really low lately and I have missed him more than once, luckily Boo Boo sounded the alarm early enough today and I was able to get these shots
I am not going to stop posting about the eagle! I even gave him his own category. I admit it, I’m obsessed.
I was totally ready for him this morning but he was way high in the sky flying circles down the path of the river. This is the best shot I got out of 414 rapid fire shots.
Six hours later, I see him flying 20 feet off the ground with a wriggling brown trout in his claws and a crow in hot pursuit. He was about 60 feet away from me. I did not have my camera. I did have a witness, which is why I know the distance. \:|
OK, this is one of the eagle flying – you can see his little white head right? Of course I was inside and the zoom wasn’t on but I think you can tell it’s the eagle. Last crappy photo I am posting though – the next time I post him it will be a good shot, do not hold your breath it might take a while!
Last night around 7 Boo Boo started screaming her head off and I look out the window and the baby eagle has landed in a tree right by the house!! I dumped my purse out on the bed scrounging for the camera and ran outside, he sat there for a few minutes and let me take photos – what a sweetie! The one above is the best out of 212 (rapid fire camera setting)… LOL Then off he went… bye baby eagle
The mother still eludes me….
OK, so I’m not expecting a call from National Geographic. I know it’s a terrible photo and you can’t tell it’s an eagle, but it is, I swear! By the time I got the camera turned on he was half way down the river. He was carrying something too – lunch? And I think he has a friend, a bird was with him on his last run through and again this time – paid no attention to the other bird, only noticed that it was a little over half of the size of the eagle.
8:45 today. Really??? What is he on a different schedule every day??
Well after an hour outside freezing – no eagle, but I do think I got a chipmunk or a small red squirrel LOL I am starting to appreciate the skill and patience required for wildlife photography
He just flew by! What is he doing – it’s 7:40!!!! Scared boo boo half to death.
So there is a fabulous bald eagle that flies by my window in the mornings. Determined to get a shot, I checked the time yesterday when I saw him – 10:38. So this morning I was set up and ready, had the camera on the right setting and I was at the window ready to go! It was raining but I thought I might get lucky. I waited from 9:30 until 10:45 – no eagle. I figured it was too rainy and he was hunkered down in a tree somewhere – well as soon as I starting taking photos of sculptures, the little bugger showed up! By this time the camera was on the wrong setting and the above shot is all I got. He is in there somewhere but I’ll be darned if I can tell where! He had showed up at 10:59 LOL This bird photography thing is harder than I thought…
