Bald Eagle
11

So I watch these videos of guys hanging out all day, in places with 50 Bald Eagles, below a Dam, blasting fish one after the other.... and these guys are using some kind of bad a$$ 50mp cameras, with $10K, 600 mm F4 lens + a TC.... (not that most of these guys are not very skilled photographers, as well) and I am SO envious ! (not jealous, envious... their is a big difference)

Anyway, considering my circumstances, going to a place that if you get lucky, you might see 'a' Bald Eagle. And it's an auto tour, so you can't get out of your car. And I'm shooting with a dinosaur of a camera..... I felt really lucky to get these shots Not that I have a bunch of other Bald Eagle shots to compare them to, but these are definitely my best

The light could not have been better... right before sunset, with the sun straight behind us. So yea, his white head was definitely glowing gold

Photos are my paintings. The camera is my brush.
