I was able to get out of work at a somewhat reasonable hour this evening, so I headed over to my favorite place for eagle watching. I only had 30-40 minutes to spend there so I wasn't really expecting much to happen.
Apparently, it was my lucky day as the female eagle came through and landed for a few minutes before swooping down for a wad of hay. That was too far away to see and photograph, but after she launched from the ground she flew low and very close by. In fact, for my first time ever I can honestly say that she flew TOO close. My friends and I watched and photographed her. She stopped twice before dropping it off at her final destination. It was really cool to watch!
