Golden Eagles (Aquila chrysaetos) have thus far been a nemesis bird for me and when I spotted one yesterday I thought I might finally get the shots I have long wanted. When the huge raptor flew closer I thought there was a strong possibility.
If the eagle had flown the other way the light would have been better on the face and the underside of the bird would have been brighter too.
I love the pose, the spread wings, the eye contact and the simple, unobtrusive background.
It is still just “Almost”.
I’ll keep trying though.
