This Bald Eagle yesterday seemed a bit incredulous that a Magpie would dare to come so close. After work I was going to check out a rumored owl pair and decided to take the scenic route by a spot where I had previously seen eagles but up until now they were always too far off to get to. As luck would have it, the pair was in a stand of trees only about 20 yards from the road and they put on quite a show with numerous poses and two great flybys.
While I was there a very nice older gentleman that owns the property by which I was standing came out to see what I was taking pictures of. We chit-chatted for the longest time and when the eagles moved where I couldn’t see them, he let me go onto his property to get the angle I needed. Very kind of him. I’ll be printing some of the images I captured and drop them off for him.
Taken in Adams County, Colorado.
