[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Once more I had lighting against me, and at the time this was taken, snow had just started to fall. He was quite far away, so I zoomed all the way hoping for at least a somewhat decent shot. I hate the fact he is so small, but as he rose, he lifted me. I loved watching them soar. Since I was on the edge of a cliff, had I stepped any closer, I would've gone soaring with him; albiet, a brief moment since gravity wouldn't have sustained me.

I found it awe-inspiring as these birds spoke to each other. They have a whistle as well as their cry. There was another sound that I find hard to identify, and while this is far from a well grounded photo, the memory it brings is worth it. :)
Merry Christmas all.

Hello Kathy
This is a great picture...
Its great for many reasons but the main one is..you went out to get the shot and you got it...this to me is worth a thousand pin sharp pictures from 500mm lenses..
And thankfully you stayed at the limit of your lense and didnt have a short downwards flight yourself!!
Great informative note also..
Merry Xmas

hi i dont understand why you post this picture

Rien n'est net il y a trop de bruit

4 exemple this shot is good and had a real interest:http://www.treknature.com/gallery/photo144951.htm

Our shots aren't always perfect but its about more than that...it's about being there and seeing and then going on to share.
Thank you for inviting us along on your excursions and adventures! :)


A very nice image Kathy. It will be on the 2nd page of the newspaper tomorrow...and the best of Holiday and Christmas greetings to you.
