Eagles.

Wow!  Amazing shots @Racerx.  Those birds fascinate me enormously.  There is a nest on top of an electrical pole in Florida (where we are moving to next week) and I will try to get a shot of it when it's in the nest, the next time I pass by :D .  Thanks for sharing!

I got a lot of good shots in, but also had a few missed opportunities. One of the Bald Eagles flew over my head carrying a fish, but I had just put my camera away in the bag. Maybe next time...

 

@ Pixey, Nest shots are great, especially when the eggs hatch. I'm hopping to get some when I find a nest.

Cool shots.

 

 

But please do not disturb them while they are breeding.

 

It's OK @Midora - I will not attempt to climb up the ginormous electrical pylon to look at the nest  :lightning:  .  If I get a shot, it'll be from underneath with a zoom  :lol: .

Goodness @Racerx - what an amazing shot.  I can't help but feel sorry for the fish ;) .

 

@Midora - I didn't know there were Eagles in Switzerland.  The only wildlife I saw when living there were hedgehogs and zillions of spiders hairy-spider-smiley-emoticon.gif

Spiders are more like a kind of pet living in the cellar. Solothurn is well-known for storks.

 

Here a typical swiss eagle (sketched in paint.net).

BTW: hedgehog translated to german is Igel which is pronouced like eagle ;-)

Dammit. Janet. It's a gannet. :lol:

 

Shame it isn't. Looks to me like a Shag. Y'know the ones that are always hanging out their wings to dry?

No, I don't think its a Gannet.  More like a Cormorant.

 

Nice sketch @Midora.  I think perhaps you used Effects - Artistic - Ink Sketch?  Nice effect anyway.

You are calling the King of Skies a pretty bird? That's lese majesty.

 

Beauty and strength go hand in hand in many animals. Case in point lion, shark and cobra. The Eagle falls into this class I think.

 

@ Pixey, I think you are right about the Cormorant.

 

Here is my Eagle sketch in Paint.net. I'm planning on using the original in a photo contest. I think it represents the aggressive nature of the Eagle showing the business end.

Thanks Red! 

 

Today I shot a Golden Eagle eating a fish it just cought. The angle I had to shoot was into the sun and created an under-exposed image due to the extreme back-lighting. That's OK though because it gave another reason to try out the Laplacian Filter. As you can see, it made a great improvement by bringing out the hidden details in the shadows...
