Dark colors, bland rocks, a river and two birds

Somehow, an eagle with a fish, being chased by another eagle, makes dull colors really interesting.  Or not.  These two juvenile bald eagles seem unaware of the bland coloration around them.  There are (a lot of) fish in the water, meals to eat.  Action.  Lots of it.  In bursts.  Sometimes, you can wait for hours and see nothing but the bland brown color of rocks in a river.  Then suddenly, an eagle dives for a fish, sometimes almost in front of you.  Conowingo, in late November and December certainly is a place not lacking in excitement.  If you wait.

Hummingbirds!

Recent images of Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds taken at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna, Virginia.  A great place for quiet contemplative walks, bird watching and reconnecting with yourself.  Flowers and plants galore.  A short drive from Tysons Corner, Virginia and Wolf Trap Farm Park.
