One of my favs of the pair from last season. I shot this with my Nikon right before sunset, then applied the texture in my iPhone. Last year (2011) was the pair's first year together. they have filled out and look more mature this year, especially the male (on the left) who is now very close in size to the female. It is hard to get a shot of the male as he is much more antsy and does not seem to like sitting around for extended periods. He is a busy fellow, fishing, hauling sticks to the nest and on the go. Once the eggs are layed, he will sit on the nest for short periods to give her a break to stretch her wings. Once the chicks hatch he will be a very busy guy keeping all the hungry mouths fed.
