Sky Watch "...the eagle has landed!"

After a getting a fortunate shot of this bald eagle attacking an otter, as seen in Wednesday's post, I watched as he flew off into the distance and circled back to reclaim his perch atop a rock. As he was descending, I was lucky enough to catch a few more shots of his approach and landing.

No, it wasn't the moon, but watching and capturing this eagle in his element was an exciting moment too.


See all the Sky Watchers here!

Wow! He's such a magnificent beast but I wou'dn't want him in my backyard. The little birds would be terrified. Excellent catches.
