We came up on a Bald Eagle sitting in a tree hanging over the road. Not another car in sight so my husband was able to stop underneath it. I shot this through our car’s sunroof, taking a quick half dozen photos.
With no time to be choosy to set up, these are the kind of opportunities that are all about luck with focus and how the branches play out on the face.
It is a shame I caught little branches across its face; but I still love this shot, the only one worth keeping.
He definitely locked his eagle-eye on us. Getting an opportunity to look down into our car, there’s no telling what this Bald Eagle was thinking as it watched us drive away.
Besides “crazy people”….
