I took a day off yesterday and of course used the opportunity to head out and take some pictures. The first few hours were pretty bleak with few captures on my camera’s card but then things changed quickly. In southern Weld County, Colorado I came across not one but two pairs of Bald Eagles within a quarter mile of each other.
One pair was pretty skittish so I left them alone but the other seemed to love all the attention I was giving them. They gave me some nice shots of them posing, eating, and of course flying.
Here, the male comes in for a landing on the utility pole they were hanging out on. It is a pretty impressive view showcasing those massive wings, the determined and aggressive look, and of course those powerful talons. I hope you have a great Freedom Friday and fantastic weekend!
