Photographers Beware!

No zoom! I was happy I didn't drop my camera when this young bald eagle decided to fly right towards me during a bird show and land right where I was standing. And YES!!!!! I did get hit on a head by a wing at takeoff!!! Soft feathers, no harm done - just the sense of awe at how magnificent these birds are! (Fun thing for me to say since I don't even like birds!)
Another one from today's trip to Tripsdrill animal park near Stuttgart.
Wow! He gave you the look!!

Nice job!

@roulin Спасибо! То, что удачненько, это точно. Только страшно немного, когда на тебя в упор глядит такая птица с когтищами и с клювом, который может продырявить. А ты ему в лицо фотоаппаратом тыкаешь.

@vera365 Мы не знаем - вдруг ему тоже страшно, что на него какой-то стеклянный глаз пялится! ))
posted March 4th, 2016  
@roulin :) Этому ничего не было страшно - он подросток, еще безголовый. Летал прямо над головами, в воздухе пируэты отделывал. И потом мне еще дохлого цыпленка принес - сел рядом на травке и съел.
