For many photographers this would be no big deal, but for me it was a very big deal. I recently photographed my first adult Bald Eagle in the wild. Eagles are not that common in this part of the state. A few years ago I managed to get some mediocre photos of a juvenile eagle as it flew overhead, but until last month I had never seen an adult in the wild. I was very fortunate because the one I photographed didn't hang around long.

How awesome!!! - You got some great shots. Just before Christmas my mom & I were driving past our local city park when she said, "There's a Bald Eagle sitting in that tree." I said, No way but I pulled over and backed the car up and sure enough in one of the park's trees there was a Bald Eagle sitting there. Of course I didn't have my camera with me and since the roads were super snowy and icy I didn't want to drive home to get my camera so I just chalked that one up as having a great moment to remember. Next time though I'll go get the camera.

That would be a big deal to me too - still working on getting some eagle shots!
