Bald Eagle and Stick

Species: Bald Eagle | Location: MO, United States of America

While driving out to pick up my son, I was shocked to spot this beautiful eagle just sitting out in the field picking up sticks. I got out and spent around 15 minutes admiring and capturing the movements of our national bird. Bald eagles are not known to be spotted in our area, it's a rare sight and one I won't forget.

About The Photographer

My name is Michael Ragsdale and I am an aspiring nature and wildlife photographer from Southwest Missouri. I have a background in illustration and design but have always felt truly at home behind the camera. Being self taught i'm constantly learning and challenge myself to take the best creative shots possible. I set goals for my work, maybe that's locating rare subjects or learning how to take a particular style of shot. I hope my viewers enjoy the shot I capture and am open to critique. Thank you.
