Today at the refuge.
Lens: DA*300 & DA*50~135 Camera: K5IIs Photo Location: Necedah, WI. 
Posted By: c.perkins, 12-17-2017, 03:27 PM

Pic 1 was just after sunrise, not much light but captured a juvenile eagle up in a birch tree.
Pic 2 is a red tailed hawk that was a ways out there.
Pic 3 is a cute little squirrel that just sat there looking at me with that one eye.
Pic 4 was a rapid point and shoot, had just enough time to grab the camera, turn it on and up to my eye and snapped the shutter.
Pic 5 is my ole pal Joe the porcupine, I know his territory and see him often, Joe was actually the subject of my first photo taken getting back into photography using
my old K1000. If you talk to him, he will stop, turn around and wave at you, no kidding

Thank you Eaglem;

Tis the time of year with no sunshine.
But some photos still become keepers.

Beautifully done. I cannot get too many photographs of Eagles. Great job on all of them.

Hi Clarence,

Are you sure that the fourth photo is of a porcupine? It appears to be a Nutria, a distant relative of Beavers. I see them on the golf course all the time. Again, very nice series, I really enjoy it.

Thnx,
Tony

No, that is Joe, the porcupine.
Trust me me on this one
Joe has quills.
