Sometimes just paying attention – and a bit of luck – yields some pretty awesome photo opportunities. Driving home from work yesterday I took a bit of a different route hoping something interesting might come along.
It was looking bleak and I had given up when I glance to my right and see an eagle in a tree of a county open space. I park and start to walk toward it and what do I see but a second eagle on a pole dining on Prairie Dog.
In the end I captured dozens of great images of both of them – this is the one that was eating.
I would have posted sooner but wouldn’t you know it but no sooner did I download these images yesterday evening than I suffered a hard drive failure on my computer! Thank goodness for backups although I have spent the past day slowly working to get things up and running again.
Taken in Thornton, Colorado.
