White-tailed eagle
4

Driving along the Norwegian coast I saw this white-tailed eagle perched (unfortunately) on a lamp-post. It was in no hurry and let me turn the car around and park it virtually in the middle of the street to take some pictures. I think it must be a young adult, since it was huge but did not have a completely yellow beak and its tail hasn't turned white yet.

Now I know why you didn't move when I honked.   

You got some really nice shots of it, and it's very beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

That's a beautiful animal! Awesome shots. And don't feel bad, I've stopped on the side of the road to get these types of shots too.

Isn't it? But he did have a good view of nearby fields and a lake.
