A bit of an extreme close up as this eagle took off from a pole yesterday. I certainly did not plan on capturing this image like this but the eagle caught me off guard.
It was perched on a pole and was perfectly content to let me get close so I was zoomed in to my lens’ max trying to get a nice, detailed head shot. Apparently the eagle decided it was time to go and suddenly launched itself into the air. This image is just as it started to spread its wings to take off and was the only one in the sequence that came out. A bit of an unusual angle and look but I am loving the detail.
You can view some more pics from yesterday of this eagle as well as a hawk and kestrel I found here.
