Certainly I have taken many, many pictures of these majestic raptors but this one, taken last Saturday, is definitely one of my favorites. I was observing this eagle when it caught me off guard and suddenly launched into the air. Many of the pictures in the sequence ended up with parts of the bird cut off as I couldn’t zoom out fast enough but this one nailed it. The lighting was quite good and allowed me to capture some of the amazing detail in the bird’s plumage.
This weekend I will be focusing (pun intended) on capturing as many images of Bald Eagles as possible as it will likely be my last chance before they head north for the summer.
