On The Lookout

There are three things that one needs to be a nature photographer:

  1. Top-of-the-line equipment.
  2. Steady hands.
  3. A high degree of skill.
Given that I lack all three of these, I'm not going to be a good nature photographer anytime soon. Oh, well. Such is the way of things. But I'll get there, eventually. In the meantime, I managed to catch a juvenile Bald Eagle, hanging out in a tree overlooking Lake Washington. There was an adult eagle (the mother, perhaps), about a hundred yards away, giving the crows something to get excited about. (Although it was the red-tailed hawk that kept wandering through that really got the crows riled up.) Anyway, the eagle was spending a cloudy day keeping an eye open for fish, which gave him a reason to stand still long enough for be to get close enough for a good shot.
