Randy--Wow. Good close-ups of the eagle. Kind of a fierce-looking face--I'm glad he/she is not out to grab ME! Here are a few shots from the snowy forest, western Wisconsin, where we went a week ago.

Randy what can we say, these photos are spectacular, was telling my neighbor about your photos, she tells me there was an eagle on the farm next door to where I live and never got a photo.... I could have cried I would have ran out there for just one!  Just to see an eagle would have been something!!!

Nancy your making me hungry talking about Walleye. I haven't had any in years, but still can remember how great they tasted.  Saturday I took some pictures of some Eagles in flight. These are cropped and were taken with a Sigma 150-500 mm lens.

I believe that I posted photos last year. We haven't made it to the Mississippi this year yet, but once we do I'll post this years crop of photos.

Me too, Linda! Frost on car windows! Great idea! I have a friend who's experimenting with taking pictures of the skim of ice that first forms on puddles.

Randy you are giving me idea's I love taking pictures, not sure how to use my camera's. The kids laugh I have a few and only take good pictures of flowers, and birds it seems. Now I guess is time for lessons.. Love the frost on the car windows who would have thought!

I'm sorry Kathleen, it is Frost on my car windows. I saw them the same morning you had posted your hoar frost pictures and was showing you a different frost pattern.I thought your pictures were great, I tried a 100mm Macro and this was the result hand held at  1'.

I have a 100-mm macro lens, which is great, but the wind was blowing and I didn't use a tripod, so the focus isn't perfect. I LOVE your picture below, Randy, but what is it exactly? I can't tell if it's miniature frost bits or whole leaves. 

Comment by Randy Anderson zn.5/Il. USA on January 4, 2013 at 4:14pm

Very nice Kathleen. What lens did you use to take these? I took these this morning using a 150-500 lens, because I was to lazy to go back in the house and get a different lens. I think I had the lens at 500mm and I was about 10' away.

Comment by Kathleen on January 4, 2013 at 8:47am

I like the details you see when you freeze an image with the camera--the claws folded back, the arrangement of the feathers. I also like the idea of you routinely scanning the river for birds. It's like a treasure hunt, isn't it, to see what shows up on a particular day? Photography is such a happy hobby!

They are a litle "noisy," but check out the images of hoar frost I took a few mornings ago.
