… We were on the water around 6:30 this morning and in search of wildlife to shoot. There were already quite a few people on the water … the migratory season has pretty much wrapped for the spring and our shooting is limited to those birds that have elected to remain in the area. There wasn’t a lot of action, but on the way back down the Castle Creek bay I saw what appeared to be an eagle landing on a relatively low perch over a glassy body of water … we cruised slowly, hoping to not disturb the eagle until we were close. We succeeded and we each got a a series of around fifty shots when it took off.
On the way home we were talking about the shoot and I mentioned how lucky we were to get a good sequence of that very special eagle. Eric commented that it was just another bald eagle … I looked at him with surprise … it was no ordinary eagle we had seen and this photo is proof thereof! So if you see Eric and he is showing you a photo “just another bald eagle” with a white head, you will know that he has photo-shopped it in. Geez!
When I got home, One greeted me at the door with that smug look only a cat can display … like, “did you get a shot of me today? I did the best I could to give you one” … when I uploaded the photos tonight, it was obvious that she did. One continues to amaze me with her talents!
Into a new week and it will be a very good one, methinks. Keep breathing, keep smiling.
