Scootch is just about the most beautiful eaglet I have ever seen! Booni, your photos do her justice, too! Awesome ... thanks so much! :heart

Okay, here*s a foto similar to one posted above, only this time look how lovely the light is.
You can really see the tassels on her wing & tail feathers well here.

Lovely lighting on her right wing as she stretches it as well as her right foot & she stretches her tail to the right, too.
 


Light glinting off the primaries of that right wing, now, & you can see her stretching that right foot.
 

 


i am getting the lighting i have been waiting for, & she is fortunately turning to catch that light for me.

Ah, good, peeking her head above her wing & catching the light on it now!

july 30 2014 20:10:07 - Scootch on the wide angle cam box



Hard to believe, when it is now dark at this time of day, that it was still so light at that time of year.
Peeking her head out nicely for us now.



Doing a bit of a flap now.
i*m not sure i*ve seen her wanting to get down yet?
She is quite comfy up there.



Tail up, wings forward!



Just reminding you where she is, compared to the Nest & stump.
Lovely golden stump at this time of day, too.
You see that on the cam all the time.
Nice orange glints on her primaries.

Bracing against the cam with her tail, & showing us both wings in nice light.

Okay, Mum is now in The Babysitting Tree, so Scootch is making a bit more of a fuss.
i am trying to catch her beauty in the last of the fading lovely light.
& also trying to be ready to catch her when she returns to the Nest.
 
july 30 2014 20:21 - Scootch on the wide angle cam box
 

 


Looking down, to where she*d like to go.
 


i did a video, hoping to catch her dismount!

july 30 2014 20:24 - Scootch comes down from the wide angle cam box

Mum was watching everything.

july 30 2014 20:28 - Mum in The Babysitting Tree
 

 


Time for me to go home.
Mum is in shadow, & Scootch is out of sight, on the Nest.
