For years I tried capturing the majestic golden eagle in flight. Not so easy. Their cousins, the bald eagle, are a touch easier to locate and observe. But with goldens, you need perseverance and luck. I feel extremely fortunate to have witnessed this great bird so close. Taken in the great state of Montana.
