Yesterday was cloudy and cool, ending up with heavy rain. Only a few people showed up at the refuge while the birds were even more scarce. I got some lucky shots of a juvenile Bald Eagle before it flew away from its perch. It is probably between two and three years old.
Two other cars stopped by and it finally had enough of the photography sessions.

It might not sport the regal regalia yet, but it certainly has the imposing pose perfected already!
Oh so beautiful and majestic, Hien, what a treat for you and us!!

Fine captures, Hien. So nice to see more eagles with each passing year, a successful return from near extinction.
Very interesting portraits, Hien. This eagle does have an awkward look – like it hasn’t grown into its wings yet. The expression in the eyes is wonderful, and it’s nice to see all the different angles. Excellent.
Great pictures! You are lucky to be able to photograph them!
Super photos! Beautiful bird.
