Far Too Long

Good Morning Everyone,

It has been quite a while since I posted anything online.  There are many reasons for this, but I won't bore you with the details.  I will try an post again on a regular basis.

This past weekend, some friends of mine from the Chester County Camera Club and I got together at the Conowingo Dam to photograph the mature and juvenile Bald Eagles flying around the area.  It was quite a sight, and although I have been there on several occasions, one can never get bored with the aerial display and maneuvers  these beautiful creatures display when they are on the quest to satisfy their hunger for fresh fish that is plentiful in the Susquehanna River.

I hope you enjoy these photos.  More to come.

The image below is one in a series of shots that shows the juvenile Bald Eagle capturing its meal, and then, as it begins to fly away with it, the juvenile becomes aware that the mature Bald Eagle is in hot pursuit.  Intimidated by this, the juvenile drops the fish in its talons.  The mature Bald Eagle tries to catch the falling fish, but misses.  I didn't realize how funny this looked until I got home and began to process the photographs.

I really like this image for the way the flock of geese behind the Bald Eagle mimic in their formation the position the Bald Eagle is in during its flight.
