Werner Bollmann - Blue Shadow


Golden Eagles are extremely shy when visiting the bait. Sometimes they sit in nearby trees for hours and hours until they dare to fly to the ground. It’s always helpful when there are plenty of ravens around, because these scavengers are even more alert and maybe they convey a sense of safety to the big birds of prey.

    This is a Great Golden Eagle shot !
    Two weeks ago I was in a hide in order to photograph these beautiful birds. Ravens and magpies were on the carrion and the eagle high up in a tree, it seemed to me they couldn't stand each other but that they also use/need each other in order to survive. It was wonderful witnessing this !
    I have come back with great pictures on the CF-cards ;-)

    Keep up the good work here, like this blog/site alot.
    Visit it on a daily basis !!!! Cheers guys !!!

    Kind Regards
