One of this year's eaglets is flying

Flying is easy; it's the landing that gets tricky :D

All three are wonderful Linda !!! I'm especially fond of #3 but never to take anything away from the other two. Again, I'm envious with shots as this. A job well done IMO !!!

I love three also, that is one character!!! "I told you to Move, what you yelling about?" On image One, I love how the juvenile has his legs spread out in anticipation - what a gargoyle!

Thank you Dave and Piet. #1 makes me chuckle to see the wide angled legs. In #3 the parent sidestepped the juvie's more aggressive posture that came after the shot posted here, and then got disgusted and flew to top of nest tree. The Olympus (plus a high speed card) captured a great deal of the action, though not all in great focus :) I appreciate your interest!

These are great, I"ve been hoping you'd have some of their first solos to share, and am jealous as always. I love the last one, which I am presuming is a critique of style, and a righteous defense of same. Much in common with a photography forum...

2. POPS! MEAN IT! REALLY! LOOK OUT! RIGHT BEHIND YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaa...

3. WHAT THE BLINKIN' HE-----

Frank, Minnie and Chuck - thank you for your interest! Minnie, hysterical about similarities to photo forums. Chuck, super dialogue! It's great to share the joy of my eagle experiences with you all, and to laugh at your clever come-backs :)

I've never had to think about it before but I imagine landing isn't as easy as it looks the first few times.

Imagine keeping your weight under you, then all of a sudden throwing it forward while your feet catch a branch and you readjust your weight. Wow.

These are crazy fun and I'm glad you thought to share them with us! Thank you, S-
