The beauty and majestic grace of
the bald eagle has always intrigued me.
To see them in their natural
habitat was just plain awesomeness.
I first got the opportunity
a while back to see them
and as luck would
have it...I left my bleeping
camera card at home! Oh the horror. :(
2nd opportunity arises...the sun went
down too soon. It was
a great time riding, and I got to see them
but still no pictures.
I wish I had a longer lens, but hey
they turned out pretty decent for a
point and shoot kind of girl. :)
I want photography to be my lazy hobby,
which in my mind means I don't want to
learn all the technical things about
my camera. I can tell when a picture

could poop on my head.
He may have been thinking about it in this
picture. He could have got
me pretty good. :)
I didn't get many of them sitting down.
They would fly if I got anywhere near.
I had to zoom pretty good to get
I will definitely try to get back to
see them. Maybe I will have a
better lens next time. I will
be taking some sunscreen next time.
I normally am adamant about taking it with
me, but I forgot just how far away the
eagles were and even got lost a couple
of times. I had
taken the top off the Jeep for
the first time and got a little toasty. :(
Get out there and take some pics! :)
