Cormorants from St Michael’s Manor in St. Mary’s County.  They were very far away, and my focus was off a little, but I liked the reflection...

An Eagle Visit

 I haven't seen an eagle since someone put up a bird blind for hunting on both sides of our property in the water just before Thanksgiving.  A birder assured me they would probably come back, but I've been sceptical.  Here are 2 of my best shots of the bald eagle.  Two P.M. Is not ideal, but better than nothing!

I am rather disappointed, because I saw eagles every few days last winter, often a pair of eagles.  

few weeks ago, I saw one great blue heron.  I miss photographing them.

The bird blinds have to be 150 yards from an occupied building.  They recently spent some time shooting at the cute little canvas back ducks I have on video on my Calm Reflections Photography Facebook page.  I think that's what they were anyway.  

There is very little I can do about the blinds, since hunting is very popular here, just hope for good luck.
