Why not me?!

In the wake of the bald eagle being unconscionably shot and killed in my area (see yesterday’s post), I feel the call to become an advocate on their behalf.

If you read this blog on any regularity, you know that I have a deep love and passion for these beautiful birds.

With that in mind, moving forward, I have decided to devote a major portion of my photographic efforts to showcasing the astonishing beauty of these magnificent animals, even more than I already have.

It will require a significant upgrade in ability and gear, but damn, somebody has to do it!

Perhaps, at least in my hopeful (and perhaps naive) mind, the awe-inspiring sight of such wonderful beauty will soften the heart of someone who might otherwise do them harm.

If I can save one bald eagle from a similar dark fate, it will be a success.

  1. Wonderful photo. Disgusting person. We monitor our property with wildlife cams to catch anyone who thinks they can hunt on our property. We’ve had the wires cut a few times, so we move them and hide them.

    1. Sadly, that’s what has to be done in a world that people gain joy from the sordid act of killing. Thank you Cindy.

  2. Rich, maybe consider selling prints and donating a percentage to wildlife conservation. I’m sure there’s a foundation for just Eagles. Your photos are so amazing and a beautiful tribute to our glorious bird!!
