A Few That Pleased My Eye....

We headed out to the lake to see the annual migration of the Bald Eagles. What a joy it is to see them here!! The kids were so excited!!

I do not have the camera power to catch tight closeups of them..but I was able to get a few to share with you all anyway.

There was wonderful gal there with some serious equipment...I have camera envy..I really do. They were taking photos of the eagles too! Stunning shots and a wonderful see some amazing pictures taken there today by Missi...please click here!

She was sweet enough to show me this Kokanee Salmon..who clearly had been eaten..but made for some very cool macros! I know Ewwww..but look at those teeth...and the tongue...I think it is has teeth too!!

Some bits of leftovers..

I really loved this shot..but cannot seem to get it to load right side up..its sideways..any thoughts all??

Have a great weekend, Sarah

Some very interesting shots, Sarah! Not your ordinary coffee table beauty shots, but ones full of texture and line.

Your Eagle on a branch is a classic pose, and you are lucky to get such a striking shot. His head stands out against that dark background.

Beyond the photo experience, the personal one of seeing them so close, and in number is a special gift that you've been given.

On your technical problem, I've encountered the same situation before, and figured out it is the size. If you make it smaller, it will then rotate as you would like it to do.

Thank you for sharing your eye with us once again! You have a unique way of seeing the world, and it is fascinating to see your viewpoint.

I have a serious case of bird envy, I've never seen bald eagles in the wild. Thanks for sharing.
