Picture of the Day - "Contemplation" - Dec. 26, 2016

Went for a drive down to Tantramar Marsh again, looking for the Golden Eagle, that had been reported there. Saw the usual couple of dozen Crows and Hawks as well as a couple of Bald Eagles. We ended up seeing an Eagle perched on one of the Hydro Towers with a couple of Crows. He must have been annoyed by them, as he flew off to the next tower over and left them behind. After he landed, we managed to walk up and get fairly close and could see it was the Golden Eagle. After a few minutes, he flew off but we managed to get some real good shots. Heading off again, we saw a Red-tailed Hawk, sitting on a bale of hay and he sat there and posed for us as well. Taken with Canon 70D, Canon 100-400mm @ 400mm, 1/3200 sec, f/8 and ISO 800
