Such a beautiful morning that I just had to go out with the 800mm DO/5DIV. As usual by chance, I strolled past this handsome kestrel with the light behind me (not by chance). He took off, and I could not believe to see he had been ringed.

About an hour from where I live, the Salmon have followed the river up to spawn. Here is one of the largest of gatherings of Eagles which feast on the Salmon. Lighting was very poor and I was not able to get an image worth showing. Instead, here is an image of a Seagull which would dip under the water and steal the nested eggs of the Salmon one by one.

Interesting.  Nice photo.  Keep trying for the eagle shots. :)

Very nice light on the kestrel.

The very low angle of the sun today gave some interesting reflections from eyes from ripples in the lake (5DIV-400mm DO @ 560mm).
