Thank you, Wunderground Friends and thank you to the Approvers for the honored "Blue". It was very windy and the pond actually had white caps on it from time to time. The geese really had to fight the wind. I'm sure they were wishing those darn eagles would go back to the nest so they could find a protected cove out of the wind.

Nice "catch"--on your part and on the eagle's. That's a mighty turbulent pond; looks more like a river.

Wow! Very amazing photo Maxine. Just haven't managed to get an inflight shot like this. Was trying again, but only got perched shots.
This one is Fantastic!

About Nikongranny

Nikongranny

Old, retired with lots of time on my hands and a Nikon. Lucky for me, there is a park just north of town that provides me with migrating birds and sunsets. Since joining this site, I have a new appreciation for this scenic world we live in. I especially love the comments from so many great people on here.
