Had a date with an Eagle, up early and here we go.
A little foggy upon entry, but it burned off fast. This time of year, I guess we can look forward to more of that.
I headed for the boat landing, but didn’t get too far before I could see that an Eagle was on it’s perch.
I believe this is a male. It’s a bit smaller than some that I have seen here.
Golden Hour is “the period of time shortly after sunrise or before sunset, during which daylight is redder and softer than when the sun is higher in the sky.” You can really see the effect on this next shot.
I was watching him, hoping for an in-flight shot when I heard someone approaching. Guenter Weber is back! Good to see him. Eventually I got tired of waiting and headed for the boat landing. After a while the Eagle did take flight.
Now, time for a boat ride with Captain Sy and Guenter.
For a good time, it’s hard to beat standing on the deck of a moving pontoon boat taking captures of birds, both stationary and in the air.
Back at the dock, it’s time for me to head home. Just a couple more along the way.
And, the Red Shouldered Hawk sees me out.
