I had been hoping for two days to find a bald eagle to shoot and with no luck. As my husband and I were loading our truck I looked up and showed him a tree, I told him that that was the perfect tree for a eagle to perch on, not even 5 seconds later I heard a screech and looked back and there it was on the tree I had just pointed to. It was crazy, I just started clicking and hoped I had choose the right settings then prayed that she would turn her head enough to avoid the shadow from the sun for the perfect shot. I had only enough time for 1 shot when she turned then flew away. I was in so much awe with her size and beauty that I just watched her fly without even trying for a shot in flight. This is a fairly rare site in AZ but they are now breeding and starting to be seen more and more.
