Holy crap Jerry! These are stunning, how come you don't put these in your books!?!?
Thank you, I wish I could....some were taken after my books were in the works, and others are just not "right" for classic ID or migration poses.
Jerry, spectacular images!!!! Thanks for sharing them. I hope you share more in the future, I'd especially like to see the other species of hawk you consider portraits of.
Thanks to all these nice compliments! More to come...
This may be a silly question, but the Golden is the last one right?Absolutely beautiful images and I would love to see more!
Janet -- Yes, the last one. And thanks for the compliment...will definitely post more.
Love those topside shots Jerry!! Especially the second one up from the bottom!!Vic
Thank You Vic! Nothing you don't have of course...your raptor collection is impressive.
Jerry, of course I like them. No wait... I love them!
Thanks Mia -- I'm striving to get a level higher, the level you and Ron are familiar with.
Just breathtaking. And you want to get a level higher? Photographers, never satisfied. If you're taking requests now, I'd like some Ferruginous Hawks.
Thanks Derek -- Iguess I haven't put the time into eagle portraits like a lot of other photographers, its a popular subject. But I'm happy with my level....and I'll post some Ferrug soon.
Beautiful photosl. Amazing how vulture-like that juvy looks in the 7th photo down.
WOW, these are all impressive images, but the last one the Golden Eagle is TO DIE FOR. Love it!
Thanks Shyloh...I took that Golden pic standing next to you at Bountiful Peak. I love that place!!!! We probably photographed some of these Balds together as well. You know about meetings they call "sticth and bitch"...we have "pics and bitch"
I enjoy looking at sub-adult bald eagles, like the 3rd photo from the top. The transformation of the colors (and not only plumage but beak and eye as well) is really fascinating. The beak going from that blackish, dark brown to that pure yellow is just wonderful. Right now it's in that in-between "brass" tone and the body has many adult feathers with the lighter edges but still a lot of motled feathers on the chest and belly. The head, rump and tail with the few white feathers coming in almost looks like this is possibly its first molt into adulthood?
Yes, that one will molt and have a nice whitish head with dark near the eye, and some leftover feathers scattered troughout the body, and tail will be white with some black on the tip, the molt after that it will look essentially like a full adult
