Hi everyone, had a chance to run down to Blackwater wildlife refuge in Cambridge md over the weekend. What a cool spot.
Anyways, of course, still not equipped to do spectacular shots just yet, but had the wonderful opportunity to watch this bird eat a skunk,,,STINKY, but rewarding for me...Anyways, a question about the eyes. I have a few shots like this that is showing his eye as if it had cataracts or something, or wondering if he was just blinking. Most of the shots were clear eyes, just a few like the one I am attaching. I'm sending two of those shots over so you can see what it looks like right before the shot and then right after, I think it was in that order....see what you think. Also, this other photo that has the bald eagle in, the one that is in flight, is that a golden eagle or an immature bald eagle. Just wondering. My next trip down I will be armed with a LONG LENS, that's for sure...let me know what you all think. Also, what kind of bird eating the skunk?
