As usual, I have not been on in a while. Went back to work and just busy. I have been taking lots of photos so now I have to do some processing and uploading. I look forward to seeing all of your work soon!! All three of these shots were taken Jan 31 at the Lower Klamath Wildlife preserve. The bald eagles winter there by the hundreds!!

He was very patient! They put up these roosting poles, like phone poles with no wires, here and there, This guy just sat and we drove our vehicle right under him with the sunroof open, snapping away. Great fun! That is full frame, not cropped!!

True, Koren! I think it was a good pick for our national bird! And they are once again plentiful after about 50 years of protection as an endangered species! :-))
