    Excellent shots Chris! I always give these guys a wide berth. Small but painful.

    Ken, your heading to Iceland in March? Not exactly tourist season.

    Your turn Falcon.

    Actually early March is timed for ice caves and Aurora Borealis (I hope). The first week starts with a new moon so extra dark skies, but hopefully a little bit of light by the end of the week to keep the ground from being totally black. This is the end of the 11 year solar cycle peak and for a not well explained reason there tends to be better displays within a few eeks of the vernal and autumnal equinoxes. Still long dark nights so that the peak hours 10-midnight are plenty dark.

    No bugs but an Eagle

    Not right time of year for bugs. We are still getting assaulted by the Arctic. Another cold snap due this week. I did shoot an eagle on Sat but am not proud of the shot due to negative sky conditions. Played with it a bit as well. Cloned out some lines from High tension towers that ran behind the bird.

    Falconest,

    Those are not bad at all. Great that you managed to get a view from above the wing in that second one. Dark birds against the bright sky are always an exposure challenge particularly if you only get a chance at a few quick shots.

    Kgosden;
    Yep, I had to manipulate the exposure to bring the detail out and not turn the sky to whitewash. The fun part was cloning out the wires and not making it obvious that something was done to the pic. The pic with the head on the Left was especially bad as one wire went right behind the head and out past the tail. (Am I giving away too many secrets?)

    You need to spend a couple of minutes getting rid of those power lines it would be dead set easy. They totally ruin the shots IMO.
