Bald Eagles


I was sitting in the motor home waiting to go on a water taxi trip when my husband came in and said there were two eagles sitting on the beach.  I grabbed my camera and headed out.


The wind was blowing pretty hard.  When I looked at my camera I realized I had the polarizing filter on and the pictures were dark.  Once I took the filter off they cleared up and the focus improved.


I kept creeping closer to get better shots.


Then of course they took off,


but not before grabbing some nest building materials.


I've seen eagles before but never have I seen them do this.


It was very exciting to watch.
