I took these this morning on the indian reservation. It's the only eagle I saw today. I wish I wouldn't have clipped the wings in the third shot. Jeff

The eagle was on a post right next to the road. I pulled up a little past it in my van, got out, and started snapping pictures. Jeff

The markings means a young bird? Maybe he has not learned to be afraid of people yet.

very nice Jeff This is a great series. I like how you managed to keep the horizon level in the BIF shots. I also like the background provided in the BIF shots.
