With all the activity in the marshes now it was only a matter of time until we bumped into Bald Eagles. They are always around, we even know where they will be watching us from.
However, getting action shots is all about timing. It takes an Eagle a few minutes to move in, get prey, and leave. Being in the right spot here takes luck too.
Below, a quick grab and he’s gone.
But the low water means they need a new plan, not just swoop down out of their pine tree. The Eagle above might have even been confused. He was standing where he was fishing just the other day.
Eagles Make An AppearanceA juvenile (above) also landed, but he just watched the adults.
Eventually they all reverted back to normal, left us standing there while they flew off.
