I have been known to sit or hide and wait a long time for a possible bird shot. Sometimes I wait hours, days, weeks, and even months. I question my sanity over and over again.
Then one day, something glorious happens. All the waiting was worth a few moments in time.
So as usual I went on my sitting vigil and waited for a possible Bald Eagle flyby. After a few hours, an Eagle came flying up the hillside and was level with me just out over the road. Then it flew a few times around me before heading off. It was the closest flight I have ever experienced. As it flew away it flew right down the middle of road for what seemed like maybe 10 feet above me. Instead of taking more shots I just stood there in awe. It is a sight I will never forget.
