Now this is one beautiful lady! She was one of the most perfect eagles I have ever seen – the pose, the look, the plumage. Wow! Throw in those incredible, deep blue Colorado skies in the background and she is perfect.
Taken last weekend, her and her mate had staked out a spot on a warm day at an osprey stand in Weld County. With the summertime residents south for the winter, the eagles decided they would take it over for the colder months.
She was incredibly patient, giving me tons of poses and never once cared about my presence. You can tell how relaxed she was by the fact she was standing on one foot. Raptors oftentimes do that when they are comfortable.
