    Default Golden Eagle --Natural Perch!

    If I had to choose, the Golden Eagle would be my all-time favorite bird --but, of course, I don't have to, and neither do you. All are wonderful in their own ways, right?
    It's very rare to get a photo opportunity of a "Golden." Thus, I was elated when this huge and fierce raptor, that is also extemely wary, held still long enough for me to click a few --and this on a natural perch, instead of a power pole.
    E-5, 300/2.8 & 2X tc, hand-held & braced, cropped.
