Photographing Bald Eagles on the White River

Photographing Bald Eagles on the White River

The weather has been really crappy here lately. There has been a little too much snow and ice, and now that is has warmed up a bit, there has been non-stop rain. Today was the first day that the rainy trend ended. Clear blue sky day. What better to do than go and watch the eagles?
I met up with Jim, and we waited for the fog to lift. The fog finally lifted around 10 am, and the day was perfect. The water was low in the river, allowing us to wade out in the river a fair distance, so that we could line up the shots in nice low angle sunlight.  There was quite a lot of activity, both of the adults were moving around from tree to tree, preening feathers and such….
Great day to be out watching these beautiful birds.
