Mr. & Mrs. Eagle

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Louis Champan, Jun 11, 2018.

  1. You never know what to expect and can’t count on anything when driving the beach early in the mornings, but on this morning last week, I was pleasantly surprised. I hadn’t gone far when off in the distance I spotted two whites heads sticking out quite noticeable against the darker sand. It wasn’t long before I was within a few yards of them and much to my surprise they weren’t terribly concerned about my truck, so I had about a full half hour of shooting before they decided to leave.

    Amazing focus and antics by the eagles
     
  4. Very nice that they hung out with you Louie:) 
     
  5. I really like that third one with the eagle with its face on the ground. Nice job Louie.
     
  6. Nice ones - seems they look a bit embarrassed about their behavior which isn't majestic.
     
  7. Nicely done. How much did you charge for the family photo shoot?
