    Here are some pictures I took by the Mississippi River today. I saw six eagles sitting in trees by the River but only saw the one flying. I wish I could have got a better picture of him.

    At the Genoa Dam this morning at 8AM, I saw 16 Eagles on the ice on the lower side of the Dam that had landed on ice floes. I pulled off at the wayside and wished that I had a telephoto lens.
    Nice shots!

    Thanks, Brelind. I wish they would have been closer. I only have a 400mm lens.

    Wow, 16 of them. We should have a lot more of them soon. Looks like the Genoa Dam is #8. I normally go to #26, sometimes I will go up to #24. 24 normally has more eagles but I have to drive twice as far.

    Okay, well I'd just thought I'd let you know if you were in the area that they were there. Yep Dam #8 is what they call it.

    LOL, that's a little too far for me. Hopefully they will come down here.

    Good capture -
    Buying a Nikon doesn't make you a photographer. It makes you a Nikon owner.
