A belated Freedom Friday posting due to the holiday. With family in town for the holidays, we took them for a tour of the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge on Christmas Eve morning.
For the most part, the sights were pretty standard fare – up until we were approaching the gate to leave.
This gorgeous Bald Eagle was perched in one of the trees at the entrance and allowed me to get some fantastic captures, including some very nice close ups like this one.
There are lots of eagles at the refuge this time of year but they tend to stay in the areas where people aren’t allowed. Thankfully this one made an exception for us.
