Well, of course a bald eagle was the best I found on the first day of 2024! 😀
The morning excursion was not going so great with few critters gracing my lens. As I worked my way back home, I took a different route than normal, opting for a slower route but one with less traffic. That turned out to be very fortuitous as I happened across this handsome fellow and his female companion.
They gave me some nice poses and then he leapt into action. I had a sense that he was getting ready to go so I was ready. Most of the pictures of the launch came out quite nice but this is my favorite.
I love the focused look in his eyes and the aggressive posture of the wings. Let’s all enter the new year that way – focused and ready to kick butt!
