Mother's Day on the Connecticut River, Proud Parent
Category: Outdoor Scenes
Photo and caption by Marcus Nowakowski
The eagles nest at Nott Island always provides lots of action from late winter through June. Getting a close up was another story. A telescope, eyepiece, and some cheap equipment allowed eyepiece projection photography with optical magnification of 39X. Thus a proud parent was captured. It's fledgling was hiding under the rim of the nest not to be seen on this day.
