Wow! exquisite light in this whole sequence! Beautiful effects of water splashing, green seaweed, the subtle tones of the ocean... And oh, Mom is sooo gorgeous!

Thanks for taking the time to post these, Booni!

Wonderful series, Booni!  You caught so many good frames of Mom enjoying the ocean.  Thank you for sharing them with us.   :thumbup:

You're photos are beyond excellent.

Who knew that adult lady eagles pull up their knickers and play in the waves like kids?!   :chuckle

Boonibarb

FABULOUS photos first of all.  You capture the fine aspects of Mom's wings, talons, her posture, and so much more.  You bring to us the unique qualities these awesome eagles possess in your expressive WRITING, and your photos.  Thank you for bringing these rare and special moments to us all.  I find myself happy with the prospect of reading these updates, especially after a long day!!!  The thought that eagles may 'play' really sounds ... well, why not?
Whoo Hoo!!!!
Anyone figured out what the fish was that Mom brought back today?

Aloha,
Amy
