My interest in photographing eagles started when my grandfather showed me an eagle cam. This eagle cam captured an eagle family in Florida, and the camera was set up above an eagle nest. This sparked an interest in me for bald eagles.

Later, he told me about a nest of bald eagles at the Kentucky Boys and Girls Sherriff’s Ranch near Kentucky Lake. Soon, he took me there, but I couldn’t see them yet. He told me that they would come out at certain times of the day, so we waited for the eagle. He had been several times before and knew lots of people were tracking this eagle family. As soon as it flew in, I started taking pictures. The eagle landed on a branch. I took all kinds of pictures, most of them with the eagle’s head down. He looked up, and I got some better pictures. This picture I submitted stood out among the handful of pictures because the picture showed the eagle’s whole body. During this picture session, I got to try a tripod, but I didn’t use it for this picture. After we took more pictures and the eagle flew away, we went home to look at the pictures. There we edited some of them, and some we deleted. This one, though, not only didn’t need editing, but it stood out amongst the good ones, too. That is why I submitted this picture.
