Riding the Eagle by mydigitalmind Riding the Eagle by mydigitalmind
Some birds seem to take mobbing a bit too far. The Eaglets of Mud Lock, New York have fledged and I was there to watch their early flights. Every time they got in the air, the blackbirds would mob them - but they would stay clear of the adults.

Flying doesn't seem so fun anymore, does it?? Not for the Eagle at least... the Blackbird gets a free ride.

Absolutely amazing shot - spectacularly taken at the perfect moment! It must be so hard to get such a clear image in such a slim opportunity... Well done :heart:

Thank you! I wish it was a tad clearer. The best poses never come out super sharp!
