Those aren't eagles! (or are they?)

I decided to make another trip down to the river before the weather got bad - it's supposed to rain or snow or something today (guaranteed SOMETHING is coming out of that sky!). I want to get some good pictures of the eagles before they head north. I got to THE spot and, well, these are NOT eagles, but they are cute!
mode: shutter priority ~ f/5.6 ~ 1/1250 ~ ISO-400 ~ 260mm
mode: shutter priority ~ f/5.6 ~ 1/1250 ~ ISO-560 ~ 260mm
Now the deer are cute, but where were the eagles? Ah hah... I found a nice mature Bald Eagle that was more than willing to cooperate. I got a ton of great pictures of this guy. Here are a few of my favorites:
mode: shutter priority ~ f/5.6 ~ 1/2000 ~ ISO-320 ~ 280mm
mode: shutter priority ~ f/5.6 ~ 1/2000 ~ ISO-320 ~ 280mm
mode: shutter priority ~ f/6.3 ~ 1/2000 ~ ISO-320 ~ 280mm

Love that last one especially! I just need to move! There are not a lot of wildlife opportunities where I live. If I want animals, we do have a zoo!
