Oh, my friend, where are you? This gorgeous eagle that hangs out in the Colorado Front Range foothills has given me many great captures over the last few years. You have in turn seen it via those images.
Unfortunately, it has now been eight months since I last spotted it and I’ve been to the area at least a dozen times. I’m not ready to give up yet though. Seeing the massive raptor was never a sure thing so I am hoping I just have had bad timing.
This particular image was taken almost one year ago on November 4, 2017.
These eagles are one of the largest and fastest raptors in North America. With wingspans that can exceed seven feet across and capable of speeds to 200mph, they are nothing short of impressive. It is little wonder that they are the most common official national animal in the world with Albania, Germany, Austria, Mexico, and Kazakhstan all choosing it to represent them.
