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

PS: Here is a sample from my newest collection Palette … and, yes, it is a photograph that the child-heart of me dreamed into a new vision…
(actual print does not have the watermark)
Both of the chicks have fledged!
Kate is not too impressed with Cacao’s semi controlled crash landing.
While Cacao is trying to get the landing finished, Caramel comes zipping by.
Kate watches as Caramel makes a landing much further down the tree.
Just like any offspring, Cacao imitates mom even though Kate is still not impressed!
The lake level was so high that I could not see the nest.
The sky was sunny, but I was not because I wanted to see the chicks branching.
I had turned around to go back to my truck when a shadow blew past me.
Not a sound had been made in the cove. Yet, here was Kate at a high speed heading for the nest.
She didn’t have a fish. She did look angry.
Into the branches around the nest Kate disappeared.
No sounds. I waited another 30 minutes then had to leave, wondering why the dash to the nest.
That is Mom Kate shredding a fish for Cacao the bald eagle chick.
I don’t know what Cacao is contemplating … or maybe she is just digesting the fish.
Cacao is begging for Petruchio to feed her.
So Dad Petruchio and Cacao both look to see if there are any scrapes left over.
