Here's another one I like from this year - it's the same bird as my avatar. I was walking down a trail and stumbled upon him in a tree about 30 yards away. I very slowly got out my telephoto lenses and took some shots of him. I stood there for 3 hours waiting for him to fly off, but he just got bored with me and having had a big breakfast (see full belly and bloody beak), he dozed off! I finally left...
I haven't see or been able to find another shot of a wild bald eagle sleeping, so I'm pretty happy with it. This is a vertical crop of the photo:
Great image! That is an image that I haven't ever seen before either! I'd love to capture that shot! Very nice!
