DISCLAIMER: I promise you that I am not a bird lover, however, I do see where you might get that idea. (Seagulls, mallards, and now these pics in just over a month’s time with more to come?) I like to believe I just happen to be lucky to have such lovely subjects just chilling around waiting for me to make them famous.
Driving to my (real) home, I saw this guy perched so triumphantly that I just had to stop. (The first picture I posted yesterday was at this same location. I could tell you were curious!) I kind of spooked him after the first picture, though, and had to hurry and catch one more shot before he flew out of range. I got lucky. The shot I caught was nearly perfect but because of the distance, as you can see for yourself, there is a tad bit of blurring.
Here’s the thing… I can’t tell you what exactly it is. My first guess was either an immature bald eagle or a female bald eagle because of how much white appears to be peaking through on the head. However, when I showed a friend, she was thrilled that I captured a golden eagle so well. I see her point too, because the wing spread has a nice white patch and if I remember right, the head starts light and turns darker as it matures.
I am hinting at something, if you didn’t notice. But I think you did.
