Robert Behne has been taking pictures at Eagle Bluffs for many years. His mother was the first person to show the area to him two decades ago. After she passed away in 2005, Behne spread some of her ashes in the Missouri River at Eagle Bluffs.
Behne stopped by the newsroom to share these photos that he took on Saturday at Eagle Bluffs using a Canon Rebel T2I.
He said that this encounter was the closest he had ever gotten to a bald eagle.
