Springtime Means Baby Time
As a wildlife photographer I am always looking for an opportunity to get a great photograph without disturbing the wildlife. I recently found an eagle nest positioned very close to the road. Wildlife photography takes a lot of patience. My son and I sat around for at least two hours before the eagle sitting on the nest even moved. As the eagle shifted it's position all of a sudden one little eaglet popped up and not long after the second one popped up. We could see that the eagle on the nest was getting restless. A few minutes later the eagle flew out of the nest leaving the eaglets alone. The eagle did return rather quickly leaving them alone for only a few minutes. I am looking forward to going back to the nest to get more photos of the eaglets as they grow.
