GREAT, GREAT, GREAT and GREAT!!!

Glad you made it home... in only 18 hours! That must be a record :!: :lol: :!: I-95 is my least favorite road of all times. I had a long delay on it today from Ashland to I-295. NEVER FAILS to amaze me why all of the craziest drivers in the USA all seem to travel I-95 and cause all of the trouble. :roll: (self excluded and NBG folks excluded, too)

Sorry about the heat :( :( But, I know the experience was fantastic. What size crowd turned out? Good for the WCV, but I feel like you do about crowds. :x

Thank you Duane for taking these great pics. The setting was beautiful and the eagles did what they do best. The third was my favorite - seemed to fly in slow motion right over our heads. Wonder if they have figured out yet that there is no cage around them and food is something you find? Look forward to all the photos. What a wonderful, once in a lifetime day, shared with great friends.

Beautiful Shots Duane!! You must have had a hardhat on. Ed would never let me stand in front, lest his tiny birdie decide to land on my head. :lol:

What an experience this day must have been...

What a day......horrible traffic..intense heat....bigggg crowd....but when those eagles took flight it was worth every second of discomfort. You could sense the crowd collectively holding their breath, then the "goooooo eagle goooooooo" as Ed Clark lifted his arms to finally release each eagle...then applause as each one found it's wings and soared to freedom again.

Duane..I hope you won't be offended if I share your space for just a couple shots....crowd ambience for Pete?

and then.....after a lonnnnng hot day of book signing

after getting permission I'd like to share one more photo......Team Huwa - Randy and his wife Jackie

eta: Duane.....I think I forgot to mention I'm in awe of the pictures you captured! Image

this seems like a perfect place for all the eagle release shots . . less hunting thru the forum :P ;) :lol:
But I totally understand separate threads & can't wait to see all the other photog pix from this . . .I can almost HEAR all the post-processing clicks :lol:

THANKS for the crowd-uncontrol :? shots Ann & Duane . . . I'm actually OK with NOT being there . . .'cept it sure woulda been nice to see the release in person :roll:

Nice capture of the "author" in repose, Ann . . . and cute shot of Randy & Mrs Randy in a very animated conversation :D
Wish I'd known CBS was gonna cover it, I might have stayed inside to see it 8-) :lol:

Thanks Duane for the pic of our dog Truffles!
I must admit I was spoiled from the earlier, personable releases and so was disappointed that my Mom was not able to get closer to seeing the eagles. Way too many people there but understand what Randy & Ed are doing.
We had a great time and enjoyed the picnic too! Go Eagles!! :lol:

Some of my family came to the eagle release. My sister's boyfriend, Donald Lynch, took these pics and gave me permission to post them.

Eagle #1 (male - pretty small):

Eagle #2 (female)

Image
Image

Eagle #3 (female - she's large and Ed knew it! 12-13 pounds... Look at Ed's glasses in the first pic. The glasses are desinged to snap apart at the bridge, and they did! The eagle then gave him a follow-up wing to the face in the second pic!)

I took some video and some stills, but after the heat and getting home so late because of traffic I had a headache and haven't processed yet. I'll get to it at some point. When I post the video, I'll match each eagle to the story of its rescue.

Here's a news clip (story and 1:25 video) I found: http://www.wtopnews.com/?nid=25&sid=1725670

Thanks to Jamie for giving me a lift to the event! It was great getting to know her and her mother and MrsREB!!
