    Absolutely amazing! I wanted to thank you for the most excellent post on being a bird photographer Mia. I hope many people read it. It is the best article I have ever read on being a bird photographer. I loved every line! Gorgeous Bald Eagle too 😉

      Larry, I had so much fun writing “So ya think ya want to be a Bird Photographer”, it was a joy. And many, many thanks for your kind words on that post on BirdingIsFun and here. I love how the Eagle image shows the harsh conditions these birds survive in, better yet, thrive in.

    The photo of the frost-covered Bald Eagle, is stunning. Mia, you are fantastic. 🙂

      Thank you for your very kind words Bob. The frost covered eagle is a favorite of mine, sat with that bird for two hours in freezing cold & fog while it … well, de-frosted. Then it lifted off.
