Just one image for you today. This eagle capture was made last Saturday when Andreas and I were in Sabula. We were leaving the area and I was following Andreas (who was a fair distance ahead of me) when this guy landed in a tree next to the water just ahead of me. I slowly moved my car forward and when I got pretty close I leaned out the door with one foot on the break and ripped off a burst before he flew away.
I did not realize until this morning in processing the image (click on the image to make it larger) that he has an identification band on his right leg. I would have preferred if that one branch was not there but it would have taken a lot of work to Photoshop it out of the image and then I’m not sure how good it would have looked.
That’s it for today. Thanks for checking out the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
