11/20/15 Eagles at the Conowingo Dam II

Posted: November 22, 2015 in Uncategorized

I returned to the Conowingo Dam in Maryland two more times. The latest time with friend and talented photographer, Harry Collins. They say there are about 400 bald eagles at the dam at this time. Most of these shots were at a distance and heavily cropped. I will return in hopes of getting some high quality action shots.

    They are all wonderful pics, but my fav is the eagle flying in front of the moon.

  2. Joe Gliozzo says:

    Nice shots Ray. I too returned yesterday and had the same issues. The action seems to be a bit far away and cropping becomes an issue.

    Majestic photos of our national bird, Ray!

    Magnificent!! Love, love, love the shot with the moon, especially!

  6. In awe over Eagle Moonrise, Ray. I still say, keep sending your work to Cornell Ornithology Lab — starting with this one! No one can touch you! Thanks for taking us with you. c
