    These are my best efforts so far.. Three Juveniles live about 30 minutes drive from our home, and after many hours of waiting in a graveyard, I finally captured some decent flight shots, late this afternoon... such incredible luck.

    Actually, Daisy and I were on our way home from the American Consulate Generals office, as she has just picked up her US Visa, for travel in the USA., i thought we should stop by to see if these eagles were going to have a late PM cruise.. and WOW, just as i got ready, here they are!...

    1 shot through a ton of branches...

    2 up they went, 2 of them circling above me...

    4 the sky was mixed sun/cloud, so I had different bg's to choose from

    5 they both gave me a good lookin over, and treated me with some nice chances.

    Almost as thrilling as the whale shots off the Cape, a few years ago., and a real dream come true for me.. Daisy watched the whole thing from the truck, while feeding Maria.
