It has been a long time since I posted a pic of a young one and then I remembered a series of images I got of this gorgeous one back in February.
I had staked out a spot at a lake in northeast Colorado and was sitting and waiting for the eagles to come to me – and boy did this one! It flew about 15 feet over my head, seemingly totally oblivious to my presence. It came so close that I couldn’t get zoomed out fast enough to capture all of it but in the end I think it worked out well. Lots of detail in this image.
