Bald Eagles: A Little Closer

Learning from the people who post on the internet helps me decide if what I’m doing is ethical, or even safe.  I wouldn’t want to be the cause of one of these animals being harmed.  The fascination with the Eagles stems from growing up knowing they had nearly passed from existence because of human greed and stupidity.  So when I take pictures of these two Eagles (I know where they live) I try to minimize my contact with them so as to not cause them any undue stress.  While I could stay there for hours and observe their behavior, I try to keep it to less than fifteen to twenty minutes when I’m there.  Yet, even in that fifteen to twenty minutes they still give me an intimate glimpse into their world.

The Eagle on the left began to stir, so I thought she was about to take off.  Oh well, I had a few pictures so I prepared to watch them fly away.

But they weren’t going to fly away.
