I see bald eagles everyday, usually several times a day.
I usually don’t try to photograph them unless I can get close to the food source, like when they fish,
or are feeding (scavenging) on a kill.
I have been observing a pair of eagles south of town for several years, so I have an idea of their habits and territory.
Last week I was out looking for Dall Sheep and saw this one looking right at me from a tree high on the hill.
It gave me enough time to ready my big lens and find good settings, then it flew up above the cliffs in hunting behavior.
I spent some time on this series, seeing fleeting glimpses as it circled in and out of sight above the bluff.
Here is that series
Hunting the Highlands
These were all taken with my Pentax K20D (15megapixels) 500mm, F11, 1/750 sec., ISO1600,
no tripod, I was bracing against the truck as best I could.
