21 Apr 14. With the cherub's facing the end of their stay, and the weather looking quite nice, we headed out Friday morning to visit the Olympic Game Farm, one of their all time favorite places to visit. It was a great day for all as we had more than our share of "beasts" in the vehicle with us, and a couple bull Bison who thought it would be fun to play who's the boss with us. If you've never had a couple tons of critter trying to walk through your vehicle and trying their hardest to push you out of the way, well, you just haven't lived!! One individual in particular thought it would be fun to see if he could butt us backward, and another thought it would be fun to just position himself perpendicular to the SUV. Took a bit to move him off his post all the while with the two cherubs laughing hilariously! If that wasn't enough, we had a couple of elk who thought it would be fun to see if they could get their heads into one side window and out the other! But the best part were the birds! Lots of posing, if in fast motion, Peacocks, and about 3 dozen Bald Eagles. Most of them juveniles, but several adults as well. They made the day for me. Leaving the park we toured along the water front roadways where we knew there was a nesting pair of Bald Eagles. Turned out we found two pairs. The first pair was where we expected them to be. As we approached the eerie both birds were standing on a branch perhaps 25 feet above it, and one of them decided to fly off and observe what we were doing, or at least that's how I choose to interpret it. The other stayed in the tree next to the trunk calling to its mate to return. From where I was positioned on the ground, I could see the departed bird returning to the nest, so I got ready and was able to photograph the return to, and landing in, the tree. Today's submission is a set of 8 frames of the roughly 40 I shot of the landing. You "read" the story as you would any text, L-R, T-B. I loaded all 8 images into Camera Raw, made the same minor correction there to all, then loaded all 8 into Photoshop, where I cropped each to an 8" x 9" format. I then created a 32" x 18" canvas and positioned each of the 8 images into it.Having done that, I expanded the canvas by an additional 1/2" black border, then added the vertical and horizontal diving lines. You will note a slight bit of color change in the blue sky which I could have adjusted but didn't as the initial attempt lacked the black frame dividers.
