白頭鷲との遭遇 – Close Encounters With a Bald Eagle


家の近くの小さな池のほとりから、ビーバーダム山脈方向を見渡します。すると、小さい黒い物体を発見。写真中央左め。 – Looking out in the direction of the Beaver Dam Mountains from a small pond near our house, Banchan found a small black object in the air.

ドローン?カラス? – A drone?  A Raven?

いや、白頭鷲だ! – No, it’s a Bald Eagle!

こっちに向かって飛んでくるぞ! – It’s coming this way!

やばい、すごい接近! – No kidding, it’s coming too close…!

私たちの背面の岩に舞い降りたと思ったら、こんな風に翼を広げて再び飛び立ちました。- It landed on a rock behind us, but took flight again by opening its wings like this.

離陸。 – Lift-off. 

両足を下ろしたままの姿って、ハンググライダーをしている人みたい。- It didn’t tuck in both legs for a while, reminded me of a hang gliding person.

急接近された時は突然のことで、カメラを向けても早くてピンボケ、しかも画像内に収まらない。大興奮の遭遇でした。- When it approached so close to us, it should have been a perfect opportunity for great shots, but most of the shots are out of focus and too large to fit within the viewfinder.  It happened suddenly and too fast, but a great moment of a close encounter with a Bald Eagle.

白頭鷲、やっぱり迫力ありますね!もう北に向かっていく時期なのでしょうか。 – The Bald Eagle is indeed quite powerful.  Could it be almost time to migrate north?
