Almost one of those “if looks could kill” moments. 😉 I stopped by to check on this young one and its parents this past Sunday and while the parents opted to hang out in an area where I couldn’t follow, the young one was willing to have its picture taken.
In fact, I took tons of pictures of it as it seemed like it wanted to show off for me. A half dozen times it performed nice, wide circles around me giving a wide variety of flight shots – and clearly also keeping a close watch on the guy with the camera. It won’t be long and the juvenile and its parents will be heading south for warmer environs during the winter.
Taken at St. Vrain State Park, Colorado.
