Sky
Lens: Tamron AF 70-300mm F4-5.6 LD Macro 1:2 Camera: K1 Photo Location: Butte near Palmer, Alaska ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/250s Aperture: F13.5 
Posted By: GRB, 11-13-2019, 11:29 PM

This was taken a few weeks after I had multiple bypass surgery while trying to climb up "the Butte" near Palmer, Alaska. This is a juvenile Bald Eagle chasing this guy about the sky. I eventually found the pilot and provided him with a copy of the photo. Aperture was actually f13.

Really neat shot. Eagle was just trying to invite the pilot over for some crackers and fish.

The skyman logo element really brings a smile. Glad you are on the mend and well enough to indulge in this shot.

Yikes! I don't think I'd want to be divebombed by an eagle while parasailing. I knew they attached drones, but I didn't know thy attacked parasails!

The eagle really just flew along with him, las if he/she were observing something strange.

Oh! Maybe the eagles there are less aggressive than ours.

Hmmmm. I have this image of a surgery team working on you "while trying to climb up 'the Butte'". Multiple bypass surgery conducted in the middle of a mountain climb would be a first.

Sorry, I read things very literally at times!!! The closest I have come to your experience is one simple little stent implant, so congratulations on getting up and about again after such an op!!

You have to love your surgery team for letting you get back to being able to get back up and out and about to take a pic like this - definitely a "one-off" image. The opposition of the eagle against the skyman shape is great. There is both humour and a little of the surreal there.

When I noticed that my surgeon was wearing Italian leather cowboy boots I knew all was well. I really did have a fantastic team and they didn't have an easy time of it either.
