The BIG news of the day!... the sun does shine in Iowa! In fact, there was a cloudless, sunny sky all day.... which of course, is not "ideal" for nature photography either....but I'll take it. I had about 15-20 eagles all around me this late afternoon with some pretty good activity. I was happy to finally take some eagle images with some decent light and the light sure makes them pop! Something about light and photography that go together, huh?
I spoke with some local photographers and they showed me a good spot to see eagles on the ice eating their fish in the mornings.
Hopefully we will have good weather for the upcoming MPEG GroupShoot here!
I am posting two images that illustrate the nice late afternoon light today. The top image is a juvenile bald eagle and the second image is an adult bald eagle. Click on the image for a LARGER view.
