With some big help from Jim Botta, we have put together about 80 images and videos from the Long Island Wildlife Photography group.  This is literally just a fraction of what has been posted since Monday!

One of the highlights this week is the video work of Natalie Ann, who was somehow able to capture three Juvenile Bald Eagles together and one of the Eagles fledging the nest for the first time on the last page.

This week’s cover goes to Rainy Sepulveda with an incredible close up of an adult Bald Eagle with a freshly caught bunker.  If you have time try to check scroll through all 8 pages and feel free to share!
