Golden Eagle in a snowstorm Orilla Verde Recreation Area in the Rio Grande Gorge, New Mexico. The tree is a decades-long roosting place for Bald Eagles. This tree succumbed to the elements over the last few years and made room for hawks, osprey and golden eagles. Everything falls in to place perfectly. Thanks for looking. G

I like epic too. I’ll take it. Thank you, Sandy. G
I like that. The birds are our closest connection to dinosaurs. Thanks, Sandy. G
I very much like the treatment used here. The image has a “high lonesome” feel to it. Well done!
I like the “high lonesome” attribute. I like it a lot. Thanks, Ron. G
The exquisite results of a patient, excellent photograher (albeit nuts for being out on this cold frosty day). I love this photo.
I haven’t seen goldens in the gorge for a number of years, that doesn’t mean they aren’t there. I prefer inclement weather for photography, fewer people around. Hahaha. Thanks, Jo. G
Beautiful! They are amazing to watch ~
I love all raptors and golden eagles are my favorites. Thanks, Elaine. G
