There were two Bald Eagles at the refuge as well. One adult and one Juvenile. The adult was teaching the juvi to hunt so they kept leaving and then returning to the same tree. Which gave me a unique opportunity for these pictures.

What a great photo op this was. And you took good advantage of it. That last one without the tree branches is a real keeper. Besides the lower part of the wings being slightly dark I'd say this is one of a kind. Not too often does one get as good a chance at this wonderful bird. If I saw one I'd probably pass out from blood pressurebefore taking the photo.

Many thanks,

I was lucky to catch him in between the thick branches as it was. Yes, it would have been awesome to catch that shot without the branches. But I am sure I would have been shaking so badly it would never have come out. :lol:

Great job maximizing a real opportunity to see such a majestic subject in flight! You did a great job capturing the moment. I have only seen them in zoo's and SeaWorld Fla. has a couple that they sometimes use in shows.

Thanks for sharing them with us!

Great shots!!!! I'm so jealous!!! There's a couple areas around here
inhabited by these guys. But, it seems like when I'm there, they aren't.

Very nice. I really like the last one. One of these days, I need to visit your neck of the woods.
