The Eagle Worrier
So, I got set up, took a few shots, and then had the brainstorm to set the camera on burst and send Linda up to scare the eagle into the air. 5 quick shots of it leaping into the air, one`s bound to be a winner. This is after she`d walked by him three times, she`s explaining what we`d like. No cigar. Apparently, if I wanted someone leaping off the rocks, it was going to have to be her. She even tried flapping her arms to show him, at which point he just turned around and wouldn't look at her. When we pulled away in the truck, the eagle was still sitting there watching us. Probably wondering what that was all about.
There's a fascinating story about an eagle rescue of sorts here, too. www.flickr.com/groups_topic.gne?id=8044
