I love taking wild life and nature photos, but many times I may go out and not see any wild life at all. If you are a true birder, you will wait for hours for something to happen, and that is something which I find very difficult to do.
On this particular day, we wouldn’t have to wait too long for something to happen. As soon as my friend and I got to the parking lot, we spotted this Juvenile Bald Eagle sitting in a tree. There are not too many Eagles to be spotted in our area and this was a very rare occurrence. For a long time I yearned for an opportunity when I would at least see an Eagle. Here it was today sitting in a tree. Soon she would start to fly around over our heads, as if putting on a show for us, with this crow chasing after her all the way. It was a truly beautiful sight to behold.

Great moment to capture!
Thanks…..it was quite the sight to watch it soar overhead.
What a couple of amazing shots! I’ve seen little birds chasing hawks, too. It always amuses me.
Thank you so much for taking the time to comment Janet…..yes, I’m also amused when I see the little Chickadees trying to chase an Owl away…..they are the smallest and the bravest of the bunch.
Wonderful opportunity. Great capture of the moment!
Thank you so much for taking the time to comment….I now hope for many more opportunities like that one….
You are so right – it is HARD to wait and wait and wait! I’m so glad you got to see this, and that you shared it with us!
I think there must be some lesson in there for me though….the fact that I find it hard to wait probably means I need to learn how to be more patient…..something for me to work on…lol!!!
Talk about biting off more than you can chew, lol. That crow was something else!! Nice catch:)
Thanks for stopping by……yes, I find these smaller birds to be quite brave….The David and Goliath story of nature!!
A very strong sense of self. We could all learn something from them:)
You are your creator’s creation being very creative. Your photography is amazing.
Thank you so much….thanks also for stopping by and taking the time to comment.
