I forgot to show you guys this

While I went Naples last month, we spent a day in on Marco Island and there were a lot of birds of prey. MrPea bought me a new camera for my birthday last July so it was a good opportunity to use it and I got these two great shots of this Bald Eagle. I am not very happy with her conduct, I have to say.....she was harrassing a pair of osprey's, trying to steal their fish, looking beautiful the whole time though. I think I'll get a good zoom lense this Christmas so I can get some more good shots like this. Click on them to make them bigger. I'm still learning how to use my new camera because it has a lot of bells and whistles but these two shots aren't bad for a beginner don't you think??

I don't know why, but I guess I never thought that bald eagles were common in the more "tropical" states. It makes sense, though- they're probably trying to escape the crappy weather we have up north this time of year.

Nice pics!

HA! Florida actually has a lot of them. But I never saw any in the summer before or at the beach either.

Wow. Yes. Your camera has a great lens- look at the detail in those close-ups. I would dearly love a really good telephoto, too. Keep on shooting and sharing - these are wonderful!
