I shared, over Thanksgiving week, some photos taken by Ernie Mills. Last summer Ernie and I traveled throughout New England shooting landscapes and coastal shots. It was an amazing experience.
This fall I shared with Ernie the great birds that I was seeing on Morse Reservoir north of Noblesville, IN. Near Morse Beach I was seeing loons, grebes, mergansers, swans and a variet of ducks. (My friend Greg Adams put me onto this.)
From then on Ernie spends every sunrise and sunset around Morse Beach shooting amazing bird photos while surrounded by large suburban home.s (Where I suspect most folks are unaware of the bird show in their own backyards.)
Greg spotted a roosting bald eagle in the park a couple of weeks ago and it seems that Ernie has really been out to shoot a bald eagle. (Who isn’t?) He got his shots this morning and they’re pretty spectacular. Maybe next time Ernie can get the shot from the sunlit side!
I love the common loon, ring-billed gull and fish shot. There is absolutely no distinction between sky and water.
I am planning a bald eagle trip for late January to mid January. I will be taking a group to a special spot in western Indiana where I’ve never seen less than 50 bald eagles in about an hour. It’s a spectacular experience. If you are interested, please let me know. I suspect Ernie will come along!
