While hiking along the trails, I often come across scenes that bring me to a stop. Bringing my camera up for a shot, I remind myself to be as still as possible as I hold my breath. Sometimes, the subject cooperates and also remains motionless just long enough for me to click the shutter.
With freedom to roam the skies, a pair of bald eagles have made their residence of choice Carillon Historical Park in Dayton, Ohio for the last few years. Since Dayton was also home to Orville and Wilbur Wright, the eagles have been appropriately named Orv and Willa.
The image above was taken one day last month while spending a few days in Dayton. Unsure if this is Willa or Orv keeping an eye on things close to their nest with a growing family of three eaglets this year.
