Rumor had it there was a pair of bald eagles hanging out near McIntosh Lake in Longmont so I headed that way this morning. Found them right off the bat.
Initially tough shooting conditions with low clouds and having to shoot facing into the sunrise. The female soon left but the male turned around into the sun and then stayed and posed for two hours. I ended up giving up after that and packing it in.
Do wish he had flown off at some point so I could get some action shots but I am not going to complain.
