I am often asked about how I have gotten so close to shoot at just XXmm.

Truth is, its about knowing your subject. You can't just ram a camera up random peoples faces and expect great results. You have to coax them, talk to them work with them, and then BAM great shot.

It's no different in the wild. You talk to the animal, maybe not verbally (sometimes though yes even verbally) let them know your there to capture their innate beauty not to disturb or steal from them. So you move easy let them know they are boss and you can do amazing things. Patience is key. And honestly it helps to shoot eagles in Homer Alaska, they have been around people more than most and are somewhat desensitized to us. That being said, I doubt there were many people nearby that could have approached the eagle as I did without it simply flying off. Walking forcefully up with a camera jambed to your nose, just isn't going to do it.

An eagle was soaring through the air when suddenly it heard the whizz of an arrow, and felt itself wounded to death. Slowly it fluttered down to the earth, with its life-blood pouring out of it. Looking down upon the arrow with which it had been pierced, it found that the shaft of the arrow had been feathered with one of its own plumes. "Alas!" it cried, as it died, "We often give our enemies the means for our own destruction!"

I'm sure there was a point thought i'm a tad lost as to what, unless my stupidity of getting close to wild animals will one day kill me, which is a possibility long already contemplated and discarded. Can't live fearing every little thing.
