Wood Storks Cool off on the West side of Marin's Pond
American Bald Eagle
Flying very high over Marvin's Pond.
Turkey Vulture flies along side and slightly above a Bald Eagle.
They didn't seem to be having any disputes.
Amazingly, in this mix is a parent feeding the young.
Dragonfly, Coomon Whitetaial, male (Plathemis lydia)
Beautiful sky and an amazing Eagle.
Big birds high in the sky over Marvin's Pond.
The White head and tail make it easy to identify the American. The Red head helps identify the Turkey Vulture.
This group of birds were together for quite a while...
I am delighted to see so many different dragonflies here in South Carolina. And, thrilled when I can get a nice photo to share.
Adult American Eagle
Taken with a long lens, and then a very tight crop.
In the heat of the day, most of the birds are deep in the shadows.
From left to right, A Mottled Duck; A White Ibis; A Great Blue Heron; and lastly the blurred bird is a juvenile Common Moorhen.
