- Description: Before or after work, I love to 'get lost' on the county roads in our area. There are several bald eagle nests nearby as well. This eagle I spotted just sitting still on a light post. I approached slowly and came within 100 yards. I wanted to make sure to keep as much distance as possible so it did not have unnecessarily use energy. After shooting it on the post for about 5 minutes, the eagle took flight heading back to the nest..
- Gear: Canon 60D, Canon EF 100-400mm, Manfrotto ballhead and tripod
