Nice shots DB. We are between eagle seasons here. Too cold for the boat, not cold enough to freeze the rivers and lakes. :)

You have some nice shots there #3 for me and #4 reminds me of the old Republic Film logo from Saturday Morning pictures, showing my age now :D

I love the colors on the Juvie Eagles, wonderful shots db. I like the bird perched in the tree with the white bark. What kind of a tree is that? Goes good with the colors of the Eagle. I talked with a forest service guy today, and bow season is still going on, and rifle time is coming right after Thanksgiving, so there goes my bird photography at the water hole. Those guys will shoot anything that moves. I don't need a haircut, or holes in my car! I'll hunt along the rim of the canyon next week, and see if there are any birds. Soon you'll be back in the woods db!

We are in limbo here also Mitch... drove up the Gunflint Trail Monday and the inland lakes had a skim of ice... should see more eagles around here as they move closer to Superior.

Arty, the Republic Film logo is a great line... Most every night, I watch a movie channel called TCM that has movies from the 30's & 40's... the old Republic films are awesome, even in my old post formative years...:confused: Thanks...

Your hunting season starts & mine ends.... I hope you have an alternate spot to set up in along the rim.
The tree is a white birch or paper birch, our whole area is inundated with them, mingled with the spruce and pine... a beautiful setting... thanks Steve.

The lines are remnants of brush I was shooting through... I should have cloned them out... but I always seem to be in trees & brush... :confused: Thanks for commenting.

Great series, Dave. I know what you mean about always being in brush. I seem to have trouble getting an open shot.
