Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Two

Starting where I finished last week…with eagles.

Australian Wedge Tail Eagles, nesting.

African Fish Eagles.

The Fish Eagle has a beautiful call,

especially nearing dusk when sound carries.

Males usually have wingspans around 2 m (6.6 ft),

while the female’s wingspan at 2.4 m (7.9 ft) is nearly

the same as the Wedge Tail Eagle.

I have have posted this photo so often that I am

beginning to think it’s nearly time that the Illy coffee chain

offer to sponsor my blog and give these girls a pay rise.

Happy memories from Amsterdam.

Odd Ball

Week 51

~~~~~

A few days ago I sighted some

wedge tail eagles…wedge-tail-eagle_0607soaring back and forth over the road.

No Camera….

and no -eagles when I returned with camera.

wedge-tail-eagle_0607a  turned down a side road and captured some

beautiful views (note I said views, not photos)

of these birds as they soared back and forth

over the road, again.

I was so excited and in a rush to get out of my car

to shoot them that I forgot to undo my seat belt!

When I get a bit blasé about eagles my hands will

stop shaking long enough to get some

really good shots…I hope.
