Conowingo Bald Eagles

Conowingo, originally uploaded by Michael J. Mahoney.

A slightly distant but interesting photo. The eagles get very active when the damn turns on the turbines. When we arrived it was very foggy, no good for photos. I was a bit worried because my intel was saying the turbines were typically being run from 6 to 9am.

Fortunately this time the turbines didn't start until around 8:30am giving plenty of time for the fog to clear.

The pattern seemed to be one eagle would catch a fish, other eagles would try to steal it, 50 photographers with better gear than me documents it.

Fun trip.

Nobody every suspects the butterfly

Went into the butterfly exhibit with the boy. Man it was warm in there. The butterflies liked it.
