Oh how I wish there were blue skies behind this handsome fellow but I love this look enough to where I have to share anyway.
Taken in Jefferson County, Colorado a couple of weeks ago, I was observing a pair of bald eagles that seem to be trying to establish a new nest. My friend spotted them about a quarter mile from the nest site so we went to check them out.
No sooner than did we arrive and the female headed for the nest then the male followed suit. When he flew by, he came directly overhead, not 20 feet above. It was nothing short of awesome having such a close flyover. Clearly he was well aware of me and was checking me out from above.
