After sitting stubbornly for two hours during which the photographer grew more and more bored (haha), this female finally decided it was time for action. She headed off to a nearby pond, snagged a fish from it, and then was kind enough to fly right by me showcasing her meal.
This raptor is one of a pair of eagles that has been hanging out at a local state park and has given me some nice photo ops over the past few weekends. They do appear to be a mated pair however, there is no nest nearby and if there were, they would certainly be hanging out there. I have to assume they were simply unsuccessful at mating this year so are spending their time hanging out in the park.
