We have two adult bald eagles that live in the neighborhood. Despite shooting them extensively in Alaska and on the Hudson River over multiple winters, and with literally thousands of images in the files, its pretty hard to pass them by….
Happy New Year!
Ah… a time of resolutions. A time to reflect on the past year. One constant resolution is to keep pushing the photography. Not always easy, but always a resolution.
2015…We had a lot of ice on the Hudson last year. Ice on the Hudson provides great opportunities to see the growing population of Bald Eagles that migrate in each year. The ice flows provide a nice rest stop for them after catching lunch. If you are patient and in the right spot, they will literally flow right by your location as they eat and protect their catch. I remember this day being zero to maybe 10 degrees but well worth it with all the activity. As you can tell, a Bald Eagle with a fish is a magnet for more eagles and this one is clearly ready to protect his meal…
