I was up in Montana near Wolf Creek on July 7th, 2004. This was along
the Missouri River
below Holter Dam. I photographed an Osprey nest with
2 adults and 3 chicks. Then I headed
south, down the river. There were
some Bighorn Sheep ewes and lambs about 1/4 to 1/2 mile
away from the
Osprey nest and I was photographing those.
This eagle came flying overhead headed in the direction of the Osprey
nest. He flew over the
crest of the cliff atop the hill and I lost sight
of him ...
... a short time later he came flying back over with one of the Ospreys
chasing and buzzing
him. I was able to get these shots of the two of them putting on quite
an aerial display.
