Woodys Portrait by Matsumoto

This here is Woody and she is the mother of four according to the local ranger. I shot a few of her and the family but still have yet to meet the father, whom is appropriately named Chucky!
I was trying to get a nice close-up the last time I shot her but failed in my last attempt. This time I lugged out the 200-500 and very sturnly told her to pose and hold it for me.
She complied.
Just as I took this a fellow approched me and guilded my attention to a pair of Bald Eagles. Imagine my delight when the opportunity to photograph these majestic birds presented itself! I hope to be there in the mornings to get them fishing out on the Potomac. Till next time.

    Nice work ! she appears to be posing for the shot:)

  • She watching over the two young ones who get nearer to the people gathered around the area. I was shooting w/ a 200-500 5.6 on a tripod that I had between my legs while sitting on the ground so that I might not appear too tall.

    This is so special. It is like she is saying, “You can take my photo but leave my lil ones alone”. I love it…a fav for sure~ Peechez

  • I was lying on my stomach so as not to scare her off. She was right in front of me w/ the children in the rear. The family lives near George Washington’s home next to the Potomac River.
    She’s quiet used to me now. :)

    I just had to come back and tell you that I lay on my stomach to get shots of the squirrels, so I can relate. It is a lot of fun. My new quest…to get shots of the white squirrel that was spotted in the neighborhood last night :) I look forward to seeing much more of your works~ Kind Regards, Peechez
