    Our water is starting to freeze again in the center, the eagles will be fishing someplace else until the water opens up again. We are in for a very cold spell so I am not sure if it will freeze shut...

    You could make a flicker book out of those shots and be able to see the eagle actually taking off as you flick through them. Superb shots Sherry.

    Thank you Toni, Odif, Sjoerd,Frank and Netty...I was surprised myself how well they turned out. I didn't do a thing to them besides making them smaller to post on Garden Stew... I sure miss my small birds we had at the other house but the eagles are so beautiful and at times we have had up to six of them in the tree...
