Bald Eagle Love Dance

Bald Eagle Love Dance (Haliaeetus leucocephalus). As I stood at sub-freezing temperatures on a very windy, cold day, I witnessed what I believe is a dance of love between a pair bald eagles. The alignment is due to my camera angle as the female followed the male in flight. She is actually above and behind him by a few feet. These eagles have been hanging around together for the last few weeks. I think they may be a mating pair.
