Mom and dad Bald Eagles feeding their two Eaglets. It’s very exciting to see this where we live. Normally we don’t have Bald Eagles around here. #baldeagle #nature#nature_cuties #animal_captures #animal_sultans #fiftyshades_of_nature_

This evenings full Blue Moon 3/31/18.
It was difficult to shoot all around. The wind near the water was just to much. There was so much air turbulence also. We finally got a clear night so I guess I can’t complain. The first few shots are with the canon 5D mark IV sigma 150-600 lens. The last moon shot was with the Stellarvue 102 on an AVX mount and the canon 80D #moon #bluemoon #fullmoon #moon_of_the_day #moon_awards #thedailycosmos

Even though it rained this morning here in Massapequa, New York. I decided to see if there was a chance of a sunrise. I was greeted with a sunrise and a rainbow. Very hard to hold a camera against the wind with the rain. Happy Good Friday and Passover to all #goodfriday #passover #sunrise #rainbow #sky_sultans #myskynow #best_skyview #signatureshots

This picture is a shot of Mercury and Venus from this evening after sunset. I would like to dedicate this to Stephen Hawkins. So sorry to hear about his passing. His discoveries will go on to benefit humanity for all time. He was undoubtedly one of the world's greatest minds. 😞🙏😞 #stephenhawking #venus #mercury
