Honestly, I was expecting to see a lot of Bald Eagles in Florida, but that hasn’t been the case. I had only seen one immature Eagle in flight and it was at a distance so my photo wasn’t the greatest.
Finally, last week luck was on my side. Hiking alone, I heard an Eagle call out. Scanning the sky and trees, I sighted a nest with the Eagle inside.
It wasn’t an easy photo to get in position with all the trees; this was the best I could do.

The Bald Eagle never stood up tall enough for me to get a good photo of it. Needing a walking break, I decided to hang around for a bit to see if the Eagle became more visible, while enjoying the solitude and tropical beauty surrounding me.
My break paid off. Twelve minutes later, the Bald Eagle left the nest and perched on one of the outer branches in the same tree.
