Jordan Lake: First Nest bald eagle.
Momma Kate took time off from doing refurbishing work on her nest to go fishing. I really like the contrast of the early morning dark reflections with her brilliant head and tail making her almost a comet as with power and magnificence she caught her breakfast.
Having just added new photos to my print gallery (more than a dozen bird species), I want to say my heart-felt thanks to each of you who has bought a print from me in the past. My thanks to those of you who check out my gallery site and consider making a purchase. Each purchase helps me to continue my field studies at Jordan Lake and I do enjoy the studying. However, my biggest joy is in the sharing with all of you what I observe at the lake. Thanks for considering a purchase.
Peace and Grace, Doc Ellen

(actual print does not have the watermark)
The dawn was gently layered in pastel pinks and blues. The elegant plunging body of the 4-year-old bald eagle was an arrogant jewel against the soft sky. The silvered spray of her capture was an accent point to the eagle’s successful fishing.
The first half of the slideshow is about one of the H&G Nest bald eagle fledglings making a successful fishing strike.
The 2nd half shows the 2 year-old bald eagle who decided to visit Doc this morning. She was about 50 feet from me.
This is the 2 year-old in the video posted earlier today.
My little iPhone tries hard when making videos, but it can’t bring to you the stills that my Canon camera does.
The fledgling bald eagle chases father osprey and tries to get the osprey to drop its fish.
Then dad Hershey changes the game.
The 1 1/2 year-old bald eagle came streaking over the edge of the riprap.
Set her talons, intent on a fish.
Quickly the youngster lifted the fish up into the sky and to the protection of the trees.
She made it to a tree without any of the other eagles managing to steal her prize.
