    Eagles are buzzing all around the "O" Town NEst! Seems to be a nice flow of food being taken into the nest. Eaglets are about 10 days old so it will be a couple more weeks before their heads will be visible!

    The other Eagle nest in Winter Park has Visible Eaglets. (they are about 4 weeks old...will post in another thread)

    Your stuff is amazing. I really wish we had that many eagles in my area. Keep up the good work.

    WOW! Awesome pics. I love how much color detail you captured in the fish, you can almost see an 'oh SH*T' expression on the lil guys face!

    Yeah, your sharp lens and good techniques does allow us to see lots of color detail on the fish....in fact there's enough color detail to make me think the fish is a bluegill!!

    LOL.........all Wild my friend. I am not into the zoo scene, I prefer the hunt and wait technique outdoors. Since we have the second highest Eagle population (Florida) in the country this time of yeaR, they are everywhere.
    I have 5 Eagles nest i can visit. Some require short hikes others are in the middle of Cemetery's. Love those Raptors!! :mrgreen:
