toes flaring, talons anticipating, critical moment just before fish strike
The opening of the Eagle Educational photo gallery and meet-the-photographer date
originally scheduled for January 23, had to be changed due to weather.
The opening will be on February 13 from 2-4 PM at the Jordan Lake State Recreation Area Visitor Center, Hwy 64, Apex, NC.
Hope to see you there! doc ellen
At this point in the herring gull melee, the fish was the only one with his mouth closed and silent.
The lowest herring gull, on the left, is the one who caught the fish and then dropped it.
Ultimately, the fish won this round, after actually bouncing off the surface of the river and then diving for safety.
Three-year old bald eagles and their mottled camouflage make trying to capture them with a camera difficult.
This one almost blends in with the water to the point of making my camera struggle with the focus.
She did get her fish and I got my shot.
Note the distinctive 3 year-old dark stripe through her eye.
