“Dad, stop bugging me!”

I spent the day at the Ridgefield NWR, yesterday, Jan. 20, 2016.  Lots of eagles, hawks, and harriers, as well as waterfowl.  At one point, I was parked near two large trees, each with an immature Bald Eagle perched in it.  After a while, a mature eagle came racing from my right causing one of the immatures to take flight and head out over Rest Lake.  The two did some spectacular acrobatics.  The action, unfortunately, was quite a distance away, hence the image is a heavy crop.  While I typically invite you to zoom in on my images–this one won’t stand up to it well!  🙂 Thanks for looking!

Canon 5D Mark III, 1/1250, f4.5, ISO 2000, 500mm, 1:37 p.m.
