This was actually more of a touch and go as soon after putting its weight on the branch, this bald eagle realized it was too small to support him. Cloudy skies and poor lighting but the action was top notch. A tip from a good friend alerted me to a pair of eagles hanging out near the South Platte River not far from where I live. I hot-tailed it down there with my son and was not disappointed. This one was hanging out with another and after they left, we hiked some more and found another pair. All-in-all a heck of a great day.
