A fun little sequence from New Year’s Day taken northeast of Denver, Colorado. This eagle was hanging out keeping watch on a field and I was in turn watching it, hoping it would move closer as it was on private property.
Apparently a brave little Prairie Falcon felt the bigger raptor was intruding on its territory and made a few passes in an attempt to get the eagle to give ground. It did work and the eagle moved on with the falcon in hot pursuit – unfortunately in the wrong direction for pics though.
Not great quality images due to the distance and the fact I was shooting into the sun but still neat.
