Showcasing its impressive six-foot wide wingspan, a Bald Eagle takes flight as departs on a fishing trip. I was watching this handsome fellow and his bride for quite some time as they calmly surveyed the domain below them. Action was negligible and I was about to call it a day when suddenly there was a flurry of activity. Both decided it was a good time to go fishing in a nearby pond and I was lucky enough to capture the male as he launched. The shot really gives a good look at the raptor’s impressive wingspan and those deadly talons.
