I agree with you - not sure there is another documented fight between Eagle and Octopus.You think that's something, see this: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/world-us-canada-50751898/octopus-and-eagle-square-off-at-canadian-fish-farm
Nice shots, Alan.Beautiful winter's day with the low sun behind me. My shots of cormorants aren't usually exciting, but this is one of the better ones as the black plumage was lit up by the sun and because of the angle of flight.
The Teal is one of the smallest of ducks but really rather pretty. This one also was lit up by the sun. Three sunny days in a row. Back to normal clouds tomorrow.
Great! I am so envious I am going to fly over and visit you! All I could get this week was a boring gull flying straight at me but the camera managed to focus in an instant. This shot is the full frame downsized to fit here.Few from today - still trying to figure out what my camera can do with BIF (and my old lens). Needs practice! I put most of my energy on the red-billed Tropic bird (again visiting the island and there are even some rumors that there are two birds around - last year it was just one!). There was also report that the third species of the Tropic birds (the White-tailed Tropic bird) is flying over the same location but I didn't see it... First photo is of the Red-tailed Tropic bird - funky exposure...
