Golden Eagle    6/12


A far distant golden eagle, seen from the trail near the summit of Twin Sisters. We assure you, this is an eagle, not a smudge on the camera lens. This eagle swept low to the ground (low for an eagle) near us while we were taking pictures of big horned sheep. With our slow reflexes, this is the best picture of the eagle we came up with. The wings of a soaring eagle, such as this one, have a flat profile.
