The Screamin’ Eagle

The Screamin’ Eagle.
 
An image can be a true representation of the scene or it can be simply what is captured in the timing of releasing the shutter. The Screamin’ Eagle is one of those instances. I know everyone things I am simply “that good” that I could capture an Eagle as it vocalizes to me, but the image isn’t that at all. As the male flew from the nest toward the female, she vocalized I guess because she wasn’t confident in his landing abilities as he approached the branch behind her. When he got really close, she ducked down to give him the extra space needed to clear her head. The appearance the image gives to the viewer is one of perfect timing on my part, but I must say, I had no intention of capturing this scene. The old saying “being in the right place at the right time” isn’t what I believe happens with a photographer who is prepared, it should be “putting yourself in the right place at the right time and being ready to capture it”, even if it is a glorious accident.
