ice fishing again.....for eagles? No Perch!

OK, so we went ice fishing again last weekend, I caught two perch, and shot two eagles soaring! I also really wished I brought my zoom lens, but I didn't so this is the best I could get. Clayton caught a cold. There is talk about ice fishing again towards the end of Feb, Well I'm bringing my zoom lens. I found out there are two sets of eagles on the lake and I'm bound to 'catch' a fabulous shot of them...and more perch as well.

Then today, as the deer keep coming around. This is the closest they have been to the house, literally right outside our window. Unfortunately shot into the sun through a dirty window, but have to love the shadow.....


  1. I am SOOO jealous of your opportunity to get the eagles shot. I've had a few chances to get one in my lens but something always goes bad. Looking forward to seeing what that zoom can catch. You're right about the cool shadow shot of the deer. And the perch are very colorful. We catch them around here but they're so boney they don't make much of a meal.

  2. I think you did a great job getting a shot of the eagles soaring! We have a golden eagle that likes to visit our valley in the spring and fall. Every time I have seen it, I have not had my camera!! Glad you were able to catch a few more fish...=) Sorry Clayton caught a cold! The deer photo is pretty darn good!!
