Regal Golden Eagle

As I noted below I saw a Golden Eagle, the adult in these photos, as I drove in the Pueblo West area. I knew from a distance that this was an eagle by the massive size so I pulled over and took these photos from about 150-200 feet with my 12x Panasonic Lumix digital camera. Look at those heavily feathered legs, large feet (the better to grab with) and gorgeous golden feathers on its head. Golden Eagles are such massive and regal birds, I find as I did today
