The sight of a Bald Eagle never fails to impress. Two together was a real treat. This pair sat watching and waiting for at least a half hour that I was fortunate enough to photograph.
Anticipating their moves with so little experience watching them make getting the coveted action shot tough. The size of the trees they perch in add to the difficulty.
The vocalizations of the bird on the right alerted us that something was about to happen.
Then it was over–they had rearranged themselves in the same tree. A scratch, then they settled back to sitting and watching.
When the first one finally flew off I lost sight of him quickly behind the trees. I returned my focus to the second Eagle, hoping he would follow in the same path and I might get a shot. After waiting about 15 minutes with no movement we moved on.
He took off shortly after, a few powerful strokes and he was out of sight across the marsh.
