Another Summer Like Day

For whatever reason I have not felt like adding to the posts with writing lately. One interesting observation to mention. In the morning the adult eagle brought in a fresh fish and fed the eaglets. In the afternoon the eagle brought in an old rotten looking fish and the eaglets ate on their own. The adult remaining in the nest watching and shading the young ones. Taking off and giving chase to an Osprey that flew to close to the nest. I was not in potion to capture that chase…

    Your pix don’t always need narration, they clearly speak for themselves. But I really enjoyed the short paragraph about the Eagle feeding, then bringing an easier plate for the Eaglets to tackle. The Heron ‘solo’ head shot takes the blue ribbon for me, though the Rose is gorgeous. Throwback, I’ve never heard of a Bee Fly and never seen a pick of buckwheat. So great posts all around.

      Ellen,
      Glad that you feel the pics don’t require narration. There are a lot of things I should probably add a note as to what I thought was going on. Somethings would be better explained by videoing. But don’t want to do that. The heron head shot sort of shows how so often that is about all you get is a glimpse of them in the swamp. That probably is not the right id of the bee fly. That picture I took in 2012 so I did not have a macro lens then must have took the pic with a cheap 70-300 zoom lens. The first longer lens I got. Thank You for the compliments.

  2. I don’t suppose their sense of smell is quite like ours if they can eat rotten fish. Although I have to wonder if I was starving if I would eat it too.
    That wood duck sure is in a strange position.
    Great shot of the fly!

      New Hampshire Gardener,
      Eagles do a lot of scavenging. So like buzzards they are fine with eating stuff in that condition. The wood duck flew up and landed on that perch and had one leg on the perch and rested its belly on the top, it was a funny position. Thank You
