Yesterday I made my way over to Huntsman's Lake as two Bald Eagles had been spotted in the area. On this outing I did not see any but I will be going back again the weekend, and to Lake Mercer nearby where four more have been sighted.
There were several of us who were on the look-out and everyone was only too willing to give helpful information. One man had been able to take some great photos of them fishing the day before, but he had had no luck today so far.
This lady was with her husband, grandson and great dane, a puppy!
Just beautiful! So, no there were no eagles today but I thoroughly enjoyed spotting this beauty of a dog.
Any luck? No, not yet, plenty of seagulls though.
I have just found out about Huntsman's Lake, a happy discovery as it is a real pretty area.
The sun was in the wrong direction and I discovered once again how important lighting is in photography, but it made for some pretty effects as the sunlight bounced off the lake making it sparkle.
I was very surprised to see so many seagulls, there must have been a hundred of them, very active and flying over the lake.
If you look closely you can see the reflection of a seagull in this one, hard to spot I know.
Time to move on and get home before rush hour traffic. I said goodbye to the great dane and his family....
and on the way home I took photos of things and places I had passed by a thousand times.
It was a pretty day but still cold enough for these horses to be wearing their winter gear.
Notice the baskbetball net in the church parking lot? Ready and waiting.
No eagle sighting today but a nice trip out nonetheless.
