I thought my photo day was done as it was getting to be late morning and clouds had moved in creating poor light conditions. On the drive home I spot a very large landing on a pole a ways away and of course had to go investigate. As I get closer I find a juvenile Bald Eagle that had caught what appeared to be a Prairie Dog.
The eagle didn’t really want me to watch it eat so it soon departed but gave me a nice flyby as it did. Lighting was pretty cruddy though so the pic isn’t the greatest but the two subjects are just awesome.
Certainly it would be a dream come true to get something similar in perfect light with an adult flying by. Perhaps someday. Taken in Adams County, Colorado.
