Bald Eagle up close


This was my first Bald Eagle photo taken several years ago that took over 2 years to get and a lot of work. Would have been easier by using a salmon carcass by the river, but this seemed more of a challenge. I found a good colorful log and then set the camera aimed at the most likely way a bird would fly onto the log. I did get a few hawk pictures over the years while I waited for the eagle. I also had seen the eagle on this log in the past so knew it was just a matter of time before it landed again.
