Handsome pair

When the female finally returned to the nest she flew to the branch and started yelling at her mate. Instead of him flying off, to my surprise he jumped up beside her. Thank you very much. I took the color out of the sky to let the eagles stand out. This image really shows how much larger the female (on the left) is than him.
