This is basically the same shot as the one above,but the cloud structure is very different. I prefer the one above because it has more texture.
However,this one still has merit.
I like shooting this boat simple because of it’s colour. I waited for him to come into this background. You always have to have an interesting subject AND a interesting background. I would of liked him to cruise in a spot where I could of put Strathcona in the background,but this is all I could get at the moment.
I never really know the angle I’m going to get with these guys. The light was great on this day. I always try right at sunset because the light is so warm.
Came across this guy in a rehab center .
This eagle is in a Rehab centre and explains how I was able to get so close.The reason I included this fellow,is to show you the second eye lid they have!
It’s called a “Nictitating “eye lid. It sweeps from the back to the front.
I am constantly getting shots that I can’t use becasue they have the “Evil” eye look ! They blink this eye lid all the time.
One thing I have noticed however. Is that this guys eye lid is more transparent and the wild Eagles are more milky looking! I do not know why this is ?
I came across a fellow who was a Falconer. He had this beautiful bird.(Harry) The Peregrine is the fastest diving bird,but not the fastest flying horizontal !
