A friend tipped me off to the location of a bald eagle nest just a few miles from my home on a country road, so 2 or 3 times a week I drive by. Usually I don’t see an eagle but on this trip I got lucky.
When I arrived the eagle was sitting in a tree, not far from an empty nest. Unfortunately for me, there were clouds behind the eagle. White clouds do not make for the best kind of background. Fortunately for me, the eagle took off and I could photograph it against a blue area of the sky.
