Today my patience was rewarded when the young immature eagle of the family flew almost right over me. He was incredible as he looked right at me, almost landed in the eagle tree, but the winds were so high and the tree after a night of freezing rain was a difficult manuver. He continued on over the lake and was gone. I was left with my mouth open in amazement that this bird had just flown right over me giving me ample time to get some great shots. As I left I was rewarded with an adult bird. It just wasn't a great day for perching on that tree. But they were flying all around as the winds carried them with ease. As the young eagle approached all the little goldfinches got very vocal and flew off as did the ducks in the bay. I knew something was coming.It was snowing and I was surrounded by a winter wonderland as well which was not to difficult to handle. You can see a few flurries of snow in the young eagle shots. Always love it when I can shoot in the snow. It had been snowing very heavily before I got there. But by the time I got all bundled up,scraped the layers of ice off the windshield and all that good stuff it had slowed down considerably.
