This immature Bald Eagle was coming into a carcass (off camera right) for some dinner. The sun lit him up beautifully.

This lovely lady was perched, and chattering away, as I brought my camera up, she decided to take off...

We have a habit of naming the birds we see on a regular basis. This is Lorraine. One of the biggest Redtails I have ever seen. She gave me quite a show today, with plenty of photo ops in some fantastic lighting.

This Female Bald Eagle posed for me for over 30 min. She also decided to talk to me and anyone else in the area. Chattering away like crazy. Loved it.

This male Great Horned Owl, was sitting there, when I looked up and all I could see was his yellow eyes staring back.. Talk about a lucky shot, though. It was the only one I got, and the focus was perfect.

It is always the young ones that cause drama at the table. Not wanting to eat veggies, etc..

Pic #3, the final shot of this lovely eagle as it came right at me. It veered away and across the field behind me at the last second.

Pic #2 As she is launching herself right at me. Talk about a rush, and praying my focus was on, and my settings were right, because at 30 ft. there is not time to adjust.

It is so cool to be able to get up close and personal with Bald Eagles. It is even cooler when they actually "pose" for you. This was just before she took off and was coming right at me.

I think he was eyeing the coffee sitting below him. Either that are he was falling over from being asleep, lol.

A friend told me about this owl, so I had to go looking. It sure did not mind me there, although it did look a bit sleepy as I snapped some shots.

This immature bald eagle was being harassed by crows for sitting in a tree. She finally decided enough was enough and took off for parts unknown.

“Eagles: When they walk, they stumble. They are not what one would call graceful. They were not designed to walk. They fly. And when they fly, oh, how they fly, so free, so graceful. They see from the sky what we never see.”

To say today was an excellent day for shooting Eagles would be an understatement. It was freaking awesome.

This Bald Eagle took off from its perch and gave me a perfect shot of it in flight.

This almost mature eagle was sitting in the diffused sunlight, wings spread open, drying out.

Went out today, the weather was awesome. Patches of blue sky, temps in the upper 30s, the air was crisp and clear, the lighting was awesome. The Bald Eagles did not disappoint either.

Immature Bald Eagle, spitting out the hair of a dead deer or elk, as it was digging in the snow for a meal.

Nature is not always pretty and nice. It can be ugly at times. Animals kill and eat other animals.. it is how nature is.

2 of our resident eagles, guarding their nest from the intrusion of migratory eagles that have come into the valley.

Scratch another 1 off my list. Was driving looking for something to shoot. Saw something on a fence post ahead, thought it was just a small hawk. Surprise, Surprise... Short-eared Owl. In the snow, no less.

A few years back (6 I think)I had the privilege of shooting a wedding at the iconic "Eilean Donan" Castle (Have you seen the movie "Highlander") on the west coast of Scotland.
It was an evening shoot because the castle is open to the public during the day so weddings are hosted in the castle during evenings only.
I decided to scout out the location during the afternoon and all I had with me was my Canon 30D with the cheap Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 II Telezoom which has had some real ripping in online reviews from gear snobs (you know the type) but I liked it.
Anyway as I walked around the back of the castle away from the crowds a Golden Eagle alighted on to a wall in front of me. Couldnt believe my luck and using just what I had in my hand I got off a couple before it flew off.
I was pleasantly surprised when I viewed it later and saw the quality. This is a CROP (about 25% of the original) and shot at 400 ISO on an 8mp camera. Once again its not always the best gear that gets the best shot.

Make:Canon 30D
F-Stop:f/9.0
ISO Speed:ISO-400
Shutter Speed:1/250 sec
Aperture:f/9.0
Exposure Bias:0 EV
Flash:Red-Eye Reduction, Auto Flash, Flash Fired
Focal Length:300 mm
Exposure Mode: Aperture Priority
