Some More Images From My Eagle Morning

Recommended Posts

They are quite the animated couple with lots of interactions between them.  All taken with the Nikon D500 and Nikon 500 f/4E, FL, ED, VR lens.  The first one was taken as I was just arriving, just at sunrise, one made a very low flyby.

Outstanding as usual, Nancy. It's an honour to have you amongst our small group. 

 

This morning I was sitting in my office trying to come to grips with my most recent internet-induced crisis when I heard the call of a fish eagle coming from across the road. It's not the first time I have heard one calling - a few months ago I heard it and somebody on our local neighbourhood Facebook group mentioned they heard it too. So I rushed outside to see if I could spot anything, but alas it was nowhere to be seen. Might be some youngster pranking me with a cellphone and a loudhailer though. ;)

Much appreciated Dallas!!  African fish eagles are terrific subjects also.  I remember my first opportunity to capture them was in Botswana.  That was a very long time ago and I look forward to get back to Africa with so much more knowledge and better equipment!

Love the last one in particular. I can certainly relate to the body language there from experience of what seems to be a lifetime ago now! ;)

Superb compositional elements and dramatic decisive moment on the second image...

We are talking full flaps with reverse thrust here... 

 

While the African fish eagle tips the scales the same as your lens at 7lbs the bald eagle comes in at twice that at 14lbs...

Amazing birds beautiful rendered...

 

Again thank you so much for sharing the aerial artistry of this eagle pair's antics Nancy...

not much to add to the above Nancy, great photography as usual ... For my personal taste #1 is a tad too much on the warm side (even for sunrise) but that's just me.
