I quickly took my first picture from the side window of my car, as I usually do when seeing something special at a distance. In this case the sighting was of a second or third year Bald Eagle on the opposite side of the river. To achieve a better view I would have to get closer and there was always the chance that the bird would see me and decide to leave before I could get another shot. There was an observation deck above the river and that is where I was headed. I tried to hide my approach by lining up with a few bushes in front of the deck, hoping the Eagle wouldn't see me, but of course it did. I don't know who was moving the most, the Eagle or me, but the result was that the pictures had a slight blur to them.Still, I kind of liked the colour and motion effect achieved, as it seemed to give the sense of immediate flight and haste. So I threw in a few more colour curves and thought the results quite dramatic! Nature tho, threw in a curve of drama of its own as I saw a Crow start to give chase. The Eagle flew up the river with the Crow in pursuit; then suddenly I saw them returning, and going in the opposite direction!
I'm assuming that all was well and ended well; for this is often a scene enacted over and over and after awhile the Crow will give up the chase and the Eagle would be left alone.
