A white head and white tail against snow is an unlovely combination, but the bird is beautiful. I’d never been quite so close to eagles before. One flew within 30 feet of me before I even had my camera in hand, and of course they never approached so close again.
When I came upon these magnificent creations (somehow it doesn’t seem right to call them creatures) I was caught completely off guard. I had no idea they were living anywhere nearby, so the fact that I was able to get the pictures that I did was gratifying. And now I know where to find them again, so I will hopefully have better images of them in the future.
