Busy, But Pretty

Once again during a drive home from Minnesota a couple of us were treated to several bald eagle sightings. Before we noticed any of the birds, we had discussed that we needed to see them on the west side of the road so the light would be pleasing. And, we wanted one or more of the eagles to be close for pleasing images.     

After an hour or so on the road we hit pay dirt and found this adult bald eagle in a tree just off the highway. One quick U-turn and I was shooting pictures.       

I like both pictures, but would have preferred that the strong shadow of a branch didn’t dissect the chest of the bird. I guess when you shoot nature photos, sometimes you have to accept the reality of the habitat – busy or not.
