Taken last weekend at St Vrain State Park (Colorado). I spent a good bit of time observing this gorgeous pair on a cold and blustery morning. While they were perched in the same tree, they were too far apart to get good pictures of them sitting together.
I captured a number of great images of them individually and then the male, initially perched above and behind the female, decided it was time to fly. As he took off he flew right by his mate allowing me to capture this image of both of these magnificent eagles. I was a bit slow with the trigger and cut off the back of the still sitting female but other than that, I really like the image.
Have a great weekend, everyone, and GO BRONCOS!
