Bald Eagle - Moss for lining the nest


I was shooting almost directly into the sun and she is 60 feet in the air with no other angle to choose.
Thanks for all the nice messages yesterday. Each one of you is special to me.

Hey if you've got to have a "gobo" why not a Bald Eagle :-)

Nothing but the best for her nest!

That's a great back lit capture. Is she still building her nest?

Spanish moss matress are great for birds. I sure she wlll love the the softness. I thought they made a cruching noise every time you rolled over.

That is such an interesting shot,Coleen. I had not realised that such a big bird would line their nest with moss - I rather assumed they would only use small twigs!:>)

Really great to see her with the moss! Eggs soon, I hope. We're all happy to have you and your wonderful photos on Pbase.

She will have a soft spot for sitting on her eggs! And as for yesterday, we meant it!
