This morning I was sitting at the computer with my back to the window and noticed a reflection in the computer screen of something flying behind. A few minutes later, Barbara shouted that the bald eagle, the same eagle we’ve seen fly past our deck several times in the past few days, had landed in a nearby tree. I took my camera out on the deck and watched the eagle sitting in the tree a hundred yards away. When the eagle took off, it flew past me, not more than 30 feet away. Amazingly, I was (almost) prepared. It was dreary and overcast so used curves to brighten it in my Aperture program and then cropped it slightly.
