Bald Eagle

May 5, 2021

I was in Fontainebleau State Park (South Louisiana), and saw an osprey sitting in a dead tree over the marsh. It was too far away to get a good shot, so I hurried over to get a better position. Before I could get into position, the osprey took off from its perch, and began flying towards me. I pulled the camera up, got focused and started taking pictures. As I was taking pictures of the osprey something caught my attention and made me turn around. When I turned this eagle was coming in to land in a dead tree about 30 yards from me (not the same tree the osprey was previously in.) I ended up getting some good shots of both birds, however unfortunately none were in the same frame.
