I woke up early Monday morning to the first blast of winter. November 11th! Come on, it's too early for this type of weather! Oh, it is Michigan.
I had some errands to run so about 11 am I headed into town. I was surprised how slippery the roads were so I put my Jeep in four-wheel drive.
On my way home I called my sister Karen, we talked about the weather, but mostly she listened to me complain about how much I love hate winter. Upon arriving home I shoveled the drive and headed inside.
I was sitting at the table working on a new website when all of a sudden my dog Kaycie jumped up, looking out the window she started barking loudly. What the heck is she barking at up in the tree? I walked over to the window only to discover two mature Bald Eagles in the tree next door.
It didn't surprise me as it's really common this time of the year. The Eagles will come to the lake and normally stay until the lake freezes over.
I ran to get my camera, switched to my 100-400 lens, and put on a few warm clothes. I headed out the side door away from the eagles.
It was snowing and the wind was blowing hard. As I peeked around the corner and raised my camera, I noticed something in the Eagles claws. It was a big pike. I really didn't get any great pictures but it was fun watching it feed. The second Eagle tried to eat some of the fish but the one that caught it didn't want to share, it finally flew off.
Photography should be fun! It's not about the phone or camera brand you're using. Always remember, your best photographs are the result of one thing, making an effort to get out and shoot.
