Mr. Crow, who has added brown to his summer fashion style, is looking up at the eagle high up behind me. Normally the spunky crow could care less about the eagle. In this case the eagle is making noises the suggest he will leave in a dive soon, so this is when the crow does pay attention. The eagle did depart in a dive. The crow and dove both moved off about 25 feet and then promptly returned for more birdseed.
Finally,....They fly like jets and never seem to perch for a decent image. I heard little ones chirping under the ramp at Portugese Joe's cement dock. I went down under on the wooden floats and laid low. After flying by dozens of times they finally paused on a mossy dock post in the water. Light was VERY low, yet I am proud of this image.
Does that long tail seem heavy at the base? There are lots of teeth in this bite. Webbed hands hold the fish just as we would. Not your ordinary rolly poly dark brown otter,... Part of a family of five or six.
