Continuing with shots from Lake Calhoun a couple of weeks ago...
I was walking around the lake and someone mentioned there was a bald eagle in a tree a bit farther along. So, I kept walking and, when I got to the place indicated, saw nothing. Continuing along another quarter mile or so, I found this one:
But, as you can see, it was hiding behind small branches. And it didn't like me trying to get closer and flew off back the way I had come.
So, I turned around and sought to follow, presumably after it settled in somewhere. I asked some people along the way, but they only said it had flown past. Then, somone pointed out a pair circling high above. I tried to get sme shots, but only managed some eagle dots. At that point, I figured I'd just head back to the car and leave. But, on the way, I came across this:
That's right. A pair of bald eagles sitting on a tree over the path back to my car. So, I settled in for the next hour trying to get some decent shots and hoping to capture a good image when they decided to leave. That last hope was in vain (since they caught me unprepared), but I did manage to get a couple more shots I like. Hope you do too.
