“Where Are You Going?!?”
This morning we had our resident mated pair of bald eagles flying in and out of a pine tree along the edge of the salt marsh.
They started out each sitting quietly on their own separate branch. But soon one of them (we suspect it was the male) began to get a bit restless, hopping up onto the branch above his mate. His intentions quickly became clear as he jumped off leaving the lovely Mrs. Eagle alone in her tree.
Notice the shocked expression on her face in the fourth photo. By the last photo it seemed like she just resigned herself to being left. She had a look on her face as if she was thinking… ‘Here we go again, typical morning in the marsh’. 🙂
Another beautiful series.
Thanks very much Pat glad you liked seeing the eagle pair.
It was a good day to be out eagle watching! Thanks much!
I believe I can fly….
For big birds they can fly a lot faster then I would ever expect.
Wow. You captured the sequence and narrative perfectly!
Thanks Vicky, they were a lot of fun to watch!
Nice series, Phil. I especially like photo 2. The expressions are wonderful.
They were being particularly expressive out there yesterday which was nice to see. Often they are mostly quite stoic.
That’s great. He was probably out taking wildlife photos.
I would love to see eagle photos of photographers. I would even love to know what they think of nitwits who sit there all day staring at them sitting in trees.
Great shots Phil! I hope you don’t mind, but I tell everyone who comes in HBSP gift shop to check your website to see what birds are in the park.
Thank you Beverly I appreciate you passing along the site here and glad you enjoy the photos.
They still have my DVD playing on the TV there? 🙂
How utterly hilarious. I know that feeling only too well!
I really liked the look on the branch eagle’s face in the fourth photo as her mate took off. 🙂
Something special to take your breath, make you think, and feel good…Great photo album.
I’m happy you enjoyed seeing our pair of mated eagles in action Charlie!
Who says birds don’t have expressive faces!
I thought the expression on the face of the one in the branch in the fourth photo was priceless!
Great blog poost
