Fiercely Determined and Focused

Fiercely Determined and FocusedFiercely Determined and FocusedCheck out the determination and focus on this eagle. They can look so intense and fierce when they are on the hunt. All of the water drops and splashes in the background are from a duck that had to scurry out of the path of this eagle. I've never seen a duck move so fast!

The Launch

The LaunchThe LaunchI managed to capture this image of this eagle taking off from the tree it was perched on. It all happened so fast that only captured a few of the images in focus before I lost focus as it flew almost directly over my head. It was a pretty sweet moment. You can see a bit of a juvenile that was perched on a limb in the background.

Golden Hour Light on an Eagle

Golden Hour Light on an EagleGolden Hour Light on an EagleI'm digging the golden hour light that this eagle is basking in. This is the color straight out of the camera. I've viewed these eagles under just about every natural lighting condition available but nothing beats those few moments just before the sun goes behind the westward treeline.
