#2 Golden eagle

The Golden eagle is one of the most fascinating of the European birds. They are quite shy, but especially during the cold winter they might show up in front of a hide if there’s some food available. I’ve been fortunate to live just a few hundred meters away from a nesting pair of Golden eagles. Even though I’ve often seen the eagles, I’ve only photographed them seriously 5-10 times. The photograph above was taken on a windy day at my friend’s Ole Martin Dahle’s hide in Flatanger, Norway.
