    Nice Fall backgrounds making great shots of the Eagles. Even the ones with dark sky looking good. Is the dove as close as it looks in the photo to the Eagle? Seems like they are just sharing space, no issues.

      Ellen,
      Yes, the fall colors add to the photos. It was such varied skies and light yesterday. It was a constant struggle to try and keep the settings on the camera right. The eagle had no issues with the dove just sharing space as you said…

  2. I wonder if they have eggs yet.
    Beautiful shots of beautiful birds!

      New Hampshire Gardener,
      December is the earliest I know of any eagles sitting eggs around here. However the one pair really acted odd yesterday. Hanging around the nest and continuously looking down at one area in the nest. The female covering that area up when it brought grass in. The cold snap we had early in October seemed to trigger the deer going in to rut a couple weeks earlier that normal so who knows? We should know if they are setting in a little over a week. Thank You…

  3. The variations of lighting is a big bonus in these particular photos. Just pristine colors of the fall leaves also. Whatever settings you used are intriguing to me. Masterfully done Jim. There is a distinct radiance from the sky light in these photos that is exceptional. Do you still think there might be an egg in the nest?

      Priscilla Morris,
      If I recall correctly the light varied a lot that morning. Constantly adjusted settings to try and keep the correct exposute. A lot of high cloud that acted as sort of a filter as I remember. Thank You. No, there is not an egg, the eagles quit hanging around, leaving early now and the eagles stopped studying that area of the nest that seemed to interest them for two days…
