Fall day at the Conowingo Dam in Maryland.

I'm happy for all of the high votes and nice comments.
The score fell .3 on the last 20 votes. I'm never going to get a ribbon :-(
5 of the 7 days this was in voting it was over 7. As high as 7.150 on Friday. The thought of finally scoring a 7 was almost too much to bear knowing that the voting typically goes down just before rollover.
I'm sure many of you have been there.

Will we see you next November with another 4th place Conowingo eagle?

I didn't get up to the dam this year. I wish I had. This is a great shot. From what I've seen on Flickr, it seems they were quite active this year.

I wondered if this was taken at Conowingo! Never mind the lack of a ribbon; it's a fantastic capture :-)
