I need to sit down & get my sons to show me their tricks...... My pictures are decent but theirs are........ well often when they get pictures printed at Walgreens they won't until they have a photographers release.... Then the boys have to convince them that they took the pictures....... nice problem to have I guess........

Bald Eagles are primarily fish eaters, thus they like to stay close to water (probably one reason why there are so few in NV and here in UT). They will eat small animals (primarily under 4 lbs) and carrion if available, and they are hungry.

Golden Eagles are primarily found in the western states since they like to next in high clilffs or extremely tall, large trees. They are more likely to eat rabbits, marmots, reptiles more than they will eat fish. The lifting force of a Golden is approx. double the 4 lbs of a Bald; thus they can eat larger animals.

Not sure of the number of Goldens out here in UT (I may ask one of our Wildlife Biologists tomorrow for an estimate), but as you pass from CO into UT on I70 there is a warning sign about Eagles on the Highway. They have quite a few nests in the Book Cliffs on the edge of the Cisco desert and I-70 goes through the Cisco desert and it is full of rabbits, ground hogs, and reptiles (quite a assortment of animals for them to pick from).

(I used to live in Rochester Hills MI.)

I am impressed on the pictures that have the hummingbirds in flight. I have not been very successful with capturing those fast little puppies. The pictures here should inspire me to more attempts this summer.

I did get some shots of a stationary hummingbird:

And I was able to get flying shots of some type of fruit bat feeding in Utila:

I believe they are just Tulips. I took them right after buying the camera, just to see how it worked.

Mtnguy, these are impressive.
How did you manage to get the one of the bat ?

Interesting looking bat at that. Fluorescent, translucent white. You guys are all inspiring me to carry my camera more. Keep them coming. Beautiful stuff.

And in the west; primarily CO, there is the mountain pine beetle that loves Lodgepole pines, but scientists are worried they might jump to Ponderosa. It seems these little devils have a habit of jumping to another type of pine a times, and years ago, with a smaller outbreak, they ate Ponderosa than in this newest outbreak they have jumped to Lodgepole.

The best camera is the one you have with you, as they say. I love my tiny Sony RX100 for the reason I can carry it in my jean pocket.
