This is an eagle at the Mike Huckabee Delta Rivers Nature Center in Pine Bluff, Ark USA. I come here a lot. They have wild animal displays, like these eagles, alligators, everything. And animals on the nature trails. Deer don’t run from you! Its right beside the Arkansas River, and downtown Pine Bluff. Its a bit of heaven, in a bustling city…. I’ve pretty much given up ever getting an eagle shot, so I rarely try anymore. They prefer to stay in the back of their LONG enclosures. As I walked up, there were some people trying in VAIN to entice the eagles to fly up close. After a long while, they gave up, cursing and left. That left me there. I laughed and started to walk away, didn’t even have my camera out. It was no use. About that time they ALL flew up to the front of the aviary, mere feet from me. I nearly broke my arm getting my camera out, trying not to scare them away. They sat and posed for a long time, I got some great shots. Even crossed the fence and went right to the bars, risking arrest. Then I saw the people coming back. They saw me and rushed up to take their long awaited photos, only to have the eagles fly back to the back. I showed them my photos, and walked away. I won’t repeat what they said to me….Taken last fall with a SanyoVPC-E2100.
