Sometimes you just get lucky. We were out on an excursion on our Alaska cruise and caught this eagle snatching up his dinner. The eagle was actually swimming ashore with the fish before it got up to this rock to rest for a few minutes.
Here are a few shots from my trip to Bosque del Apache in November. It gets pretty cold at Dawn in New Mexico. It was the official Sandhill Crane week. We had the opportunity to listen in on a lecture about the Crane’s behavior. They have a particular posture just before they are going to take to flight. This is very helpful information when setting up your shot.
