There I was...

Published July 15th, 2011

....just minding my own business, taking some shots of a small waterfall near my house, and trying to not fall off the rocks into the water. (If I *had* fallen in, the weight of this new long lens would have pulled me right to the bottom.)

I heard a rustling on the rocks behind me and stood up to look, figuring it was a chipmunk or red squirrel. As I turned to look, a loud scrrre-e-e-e-e-eeech!!!!!!! that erupted ten feet away nearly made me jump off the rock. There was a baby bald eagle just on the other side of the rock-- who was just as startled by me as I was by him.

Sorry for the blurry shot, but I was still trying to get a grip.....
