Another Sunday with the eagles #3


I took the teleconverter off...............






Just in time for an immature White-tailed Eagle to join the other two.............and most of the shots could fit in the frame.







For some reason they all flew off leaving the salmon half eaten.................







The light was still good so I stuck around. An adult Stellers flew by but ignored the salmon. Note the lack of snow and ice in most of these photos............





And that was that. The sun went down and the area beneath the bridge was in shade................and the Smew finally swam a bit closer.



Has the eagle season already peaked? If so it is very very early.

I'll find out this weekend maybe although there has been a lot of snow the last 2 or 3 days as winter finally hits south Hokkaido..........

  2. The eagles are magnificent, of course, but the Smew is very beguiling too.
