I believe this is a 3rd year Bald Eagle. He was in the shadow of the upper branch and didn’t change his gaze for the longest time. He was also at the end of my lens range.
My friend Dali and I stayed watching and photographing him for about 5 minutes then we moved on to meet some other friends. When we circled back around he was gone. We didn’t see him again. I’ve only seen 4 Eagles in the wild in my whole life! As you can imagine this was a very exciting sighting for me.
