For several months, I have been watching this pair of eagles create a family. For many reasons, you don’t want to get too close, but when possible, I have snapped photos from about 100 to 150 yards. I have really been careful to avoid creating any stress for them.
For the last few days, the eaglets have been perched on this tree. I don’t know if they have taken their first flight yet, but if not, it will be soon. They are eating an amazing quantity of food by now, and Mom and Dad are likely spending all day hunting to keep them growing. Before long, they will be off hunting on their own.
It is a beautiful sight. I have seen Mon and Dad out hunting a few times, and have taken a few photos, but this photo excited me most. I think need to name them:).
Prints are available for many of the photos on this site on canvas, metal or glass. They are stunning and you can purchase them for a wall at home. Click the link or the ‘prints and such’ tab.
