A Golden Guest

Local nature photographer Duane Starr has taken a series of outstanding pictures of a magnificent Golden Eagle. He says he came across a bird sitting on a rock on a small hill next to the road. Just as he stopped, it took off and flew towards him about 100′ in the air and continued to circle right over top of him for about 6 or 7 large circles. He was able to get about 250 shots before the bird flew away.

If I had been in his position, I would have abandoned the camera for the sheer joy of watching this eagle float over my head, proving that I’m definitely more of a birder than a photographer.

Thanks for sharing, Duane!
