I have been photographing this pair of Bald Eagles in northern Colorado for a few years now and have gotten a pretty good feeling for their personalities.
The female, on the right, is very straight-laced. She always is serious, regal and stoic showing little emotion. The male on the other hand seems to be far more light-hearted, shows lots of personality and generally can be a lot more entertaining. This image really showcases how I see them.
While perched next to each other, the female stood tall, proud and looked down on her domain. The male on the other hand was more inclined to just seem to be taking it easy, enjoying the view and occasionally doing seemingly goofy things like here when he was scratching himself.
I consider myself very fortunate to have spent so much time with these two and appreciate having gotten to know them.
