Came across these 3 eagles in a tree the other day. I was quite close to them, so needed to be sneaky. I inched my way into a half decent position, but they saw me right away, and after a few shots, the matures had had enough of me and took off. But the youngster wasn't fazed, and remained for quite a while, and I left before he or she did. The trees are typical of what we have at our wildlife sanctuary. Lots of branches to shoot through and tough to get a clean shot.......cheers...Don

Great shots Don, hard to get close to them around here unless they have a deer road kill they are feeding on.

Thanks Tom. It is a little unusual to get this close around here too. Some places about 50 miles from here, it's a little easier, but the ones at this location are pretty wary...Don
