It has been an unusual summer. Golden eagles have had a good season. Looks to me like the breeding has been very successful.
Today, on my way to the ranch to do some mundane clean-up, I looked up to see four golden eagles circling above. I took a bunch of photos, but only one stands out. Looks to me like the two eagles in the photo are immature, but I’m not certain about both. At the time of taking, I was thinking they were both immature, but the photo is not conclusive.
I waited for quite a while for the two eagles to enter the frame at the same time. The trick was to anticipate the shot enough to get them in the photo. Almost like leading a pintail duck.
