El Dorado Park is very large natural environment. People go there to fish, run, camp for the day, as the park closes at sundown. Some barbecue, some roller-skate, and some take pictures of birds and flowers. Sometimes of mushrooms, squirrels and caterpillars: all en passant, really, and with minimum intrusion. I took these photos with the Nikon D 5000, and 50-200 lens, but these birds are not afraid of people, as they are protected, and treated with respect. In return we get a glimpse in their lives, which are fundamentally related to ours. They search for food, they live in families, they enjoy the sun, and the gift of a home offered for them in good faith, all the while aware, and watchful of their safety. The eagles had just finished their lunch, and were ready to take off.
