Well done, in the circumstances. And I feel your pain. I just stopped at Conowingo for one day on my way south. The forecast made me happy...."mostly sunny". The reality was "almost enough light to see".

Nice shots, especially under the circumstances. It has been a tougher year, for sure. The numbers are down and the sun has been quite absent.


All I want is just a little more than I'll ever have.

No eagles at Conowingo. Your first is a banded 4-year old from Massachusetts S3. Very nice.

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.

S3 is quite an aggressive and very powerful fisher..

Always puts on quite a show.
