A male Bald Eagle appears to be letting it be known he doesn’t care for paparazzi. In truth he just happened to be looking at me when he yawned, clearly bored by all the attention he was getting.
This past Saturday I was able to spend an amazing 2 1/2 hours with this handsome fellow in Longmont, Colorado . Here, at the initial spot I found him, there was only one spot where I could get a good view of him without a bunch of tree branches in the way. It resulted in an extreme angle but one that lent itself to some unique viewpoints.
Later he moved to a different spot that allowed for clearer viewing and more traditional images (see my post from this past Sunday). Perched in a busy suburban park, he ignored all the attention he was getting from the many people out enjoying a mild morning.
I consider myself very privileged to have spent so much time with him (and captured hundreds of pictures) as it isn’t often you find one of these majestic raptors that is so tolerant of people.
