Spoonbills Finding A Feast

This group was plowing through the water, moving past, and wanting to get some distance between us. One of them discovered something and I was suddenly not all that important.

They did keep watch, but sifting through the shallows was not going to be stopped for some human standing on the dry land.

Bald Eagle Watching A Marsh, And Me

We spotted this Eagle flying over a marsh when heading back in. I took a few shots as he went by, not all that good. I was still just using a lighter weight lens (an old sore back) with a maximum range of 400 mm.

I knew where he was heading but never thought he would be there when I finally caught up.

Above he was checking to see what we were doing as we found him. I’m sure he saw us coming a long way off.

This is a favorite perch of Eagles and I have photographed several here in the past. Many times it’s a pair that nest near by.
