The Eagles seemed to be enforcing the Closed Road, manning the checkpoint! They liked sitting on the barricade. Throughout the day we were there we saw a few different Eagles sitting there.

Here are some more Bald Eagle images from a previous trip to the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge in Maryland. It is a wonderful location for photographing Eagles. The number of Eagles increases in the colder months so there are more opportunities to get Eagles flying by. All images shot with a 400mm DO lens with a 1.4x teleconverter.

Here is a series of images from a previous trip to the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in Oceanville New Jersey. Now that I am fully retired and closed my studio, I have time to go through images from previous photo outings that I have on my backup drives. This is a series of images of a Black-crowned Night-heron in breeding plumage, foraging for a meal. It was darting back and forth really working this area in one of the channels along the Wildlife Drive. It was fun to watch the Night-Heron and also be close enough to the Wildlife Drive to get closeup images.

I was photographed this Great Egret at a local park years ago. It started to preen it’s wing and I liked the early morning sun lighting the wing. Image shot with a Canon 400mm Canon DO lens with a 1.4x Teleconverter.

Swans seem to need a lot of space to take off! Plus the sound of the takeoff is impressive. Their feet slapping on the water and their wings flapping make quite an interesting sound for an interesting takeoff to photograph.

I used to live close to this small Nature area in Northern NJ. It was about 100 acres with a small lake and walking trails. With the small lake you could get some good photos of Ospreys fishing there in early morning and evening. The most Ospreys I saw there flying at one time was 5. You still needed a fairly long lens to get close images of them by or in the water.

We found a group of immature American White Ibises working an area for their morning meal. They seemed to have great success in finding their breakfast. All images were shot with a Canon 400mm DO lens.
