Ray and I went up to Alton on Friday morning to try to shoot some eagles. They are magnificent birds, and very skittish. A couple of times we got somewhat "close", and the eagle would fly away. Above is a heavily-cropped picture of one of the eagles we saw. The eagle later swooped into the river to pick up a fish and returned to that branch to eat it. He flew away when we tried to get closer.
The other picture is of the sunrise and the Alton bridge. Both shots taken with a Canon Digital Rebel and 300 mm Canon lens.
