Looking For A Place To Land
This is one of the bald eagles that was flying around the marsh area Monday afternoon, and at one point he started to look down for a nice spot to land and relax for a while. At least I thought that was his plan. The eagle did indeed pick out a nice tree top branch to land in, but he stayed all of about one minute before jumping off to his next destination.
For birds that I normally see standing in one spot in a tree for hours, this eagle clearly had things to do, and staying put was not one of them!
Beautiful images of this regal bird.
Thank you Donna, glad you liked these eagle shots!
Fabulous! You captured his majestic image just perfectly!
It was fun watching this active eagle! Sometimes they just sit around all day but this one was on the move. 🙂
An eagle on a mission. Great shots, Phil. 🙂
Oh…this is where I got the idea for today’s post title! 😀
Thank you Sylvia!
More great shots, as usual! In particular the approach for landing image is fantastic.
Thank you, that one was my favorite as well. 🙂
Oh I really like the tension of the second photo – beautiful.
Hey thanks much, glad to hear you liked seeing the active eagle. And it’s about time too, enough sitting in a tree, get out there and fly around!
I don’t mean you, I’m talking about the eagle. 🙂
Such an intent, sharp gaze – a really stunning bird, Phil! Great pictures!
Oh thank you Maggie, I’m happy you enjoyed seeing this wonderful raptor!
Thanks a million I appreciate that greatly!
I appreciate you looking and commenting and glad you liked seeing the eagle!
Really nice sequence of temporary landing. He is stunning!
I more often see one sitting in a tree for hours, couldn’t believe this guy did not sit still. 🙂
spell binding stuff. Bald eagles have a tremendous presence even when still, while flying….
