Picture of the Day - "Regal" - July 19, 2016

Another stressful day for us avid eagle watchers as L'eagle still had not put in an appearance after she flew off yesterday morning. Bev and I (and a few others apparently) were starting to get a bit worried about her. We got there in the late morning and managed to track down D'eagle but no sign of L'eagle. It was quite hot and we were getting hungry, so we went and got some lunch. On the way back, just as we were passing a cleared area, I saw something out of the corner of my eye. I slammed on the breaks, backed up and saw an eagle sitting on a pile of rocks, L'eagle. After taking a few shots we moved to the cleared area and spotted D'eagle again. It was a great feeling to be able to see both again. Top photo is D'eagle and the lower is L'eagle.

Both taken with Canon 70D and Canon 100-400mm @400mm. Top was 1/1600 sec, f/5.6 and ISO 400, bottom was at 1/800sec, f/5.6 and ISO 400.
