    The third from the bottom both eagles were diving after the same fish and at last min noticed each other and narrowly avoided a crash. I also love the last one I caught him taking off from his perch and looks cool with wings spread out in all them branches

    Thanks for the Comments guys

    Thanks for explaining the 3rd from the bottom. I could not figure it out! Lucky to see all the eagles! We had a bunch around last year, but I could never get a good shot. I just bought a 400 mm lens and have only seen 2 eagles.....all winter!

    Come visit me any day there is 30 to 40 flying around at either lock and dam 14 or 35 miles away at lock and dam 16 hehe plus 6 other places in between. This is one of my culls but there were 3 other trees just as loaded behind this one at Lock and Dam 16 that day which is in Muscatine Iowa Wildlife-37.jpg
