Eagle Call

Copyright Jeffrey Foltice

Bald Eagles are one of my favorite subjects to photograph. I captured the moment as the Eagle was calling out, perhaps a warning to keep something away. If you’d like a print of this image, please click on the photo below to order one.

Lupine Plant

The Lupine plant, genus Lupinus in the pea family.

I found these in Muskegon County, Michigan yesterday along with some Karner Blue butterflies. The caterpillars of the Karner Blue feed only on the Lupine and can’t survive without it. Since the habitat for the Lupine has been reduced dramatically, it’s affected the Karner Blue population, which is currently an “at risk” species.

I found some Karner Blue Butterflies in Muskegon County yesterday. As they open their wings you see their iridescent blue coloring. I was happy to find these since they are an “at risk” species that depend entirely on Lupine plants for their caterpillars to feed on. I found these near a grouping of Lupine.

Eagle Flight

I was fortunate to find this American Bald Eagle today, and happy to be in position the moment it hurled itself into the West Michigan sky.

I caught a great moment in West Michigan today of this American Bald Eagle guarding the nest while his mate sits on the egg(s). (You can just see her head peaking over the top of the nest).

Flight of the Eagle

I found this American Bald Eagle today in Ottawa County, Michigan. I was fortunate to get close enough for some nice pictures of it perched in a tree as well as flying.

We have another sunny blue sky January day in West Michigan! This majestic American Bald Eagle, which I found in Ottawa County, Michigan today, was perched in a tree overlooking some nearby water.
