For the birds.
It has been about a year and a half since I bought a camera and started adding photography to all my… Internetting. This coincided with, and was partly a result of the dawn of the Pandemic. When I got my first super zoom camera I looked forward to all the excellent pictures I was bound to get of all the eagles I constantly see around the river.
But as soon as I got the camera the eagles sort of went away.
Oh, I saw them flying by occasionally. And I might have seen a couple when I didn’t have my camera, but whatever local nesters we had no longer appeared to be around. Any other animal I reasonably hoped to photograph around here I did during all that time, but no eagles. Until today. Even then I saw this one far away on a branch, while I was walking back from coffee with my wife. I had to run back out with my camera and hope it was still there.
It was. This was as good as I could get.
Still, it’s an eagle. They’re just so photogenic!
