Encountering Eagles Along The Road

.

I had a crazy-cool encounter occur while driving through Eastern Neck NWR a few days ago.  Directly in front of me, two Eagles were in hot pursuit of a third Eagle with a fish.

While reaching for my camera, I watched the fish fall from the sky down alongside the telephone pole.  My two windshield shots!  😉

The other two Eagles landed in the trees above us to watch.

As I jumped out of my car, the Eagle took flight with the fish.

My first two shots were blurry but I got lucky with my final shot as the Eagle flew directly at me and whooshed over my head!

The Eagle continued down the road behind me and then took a sharp left turn into the woods.

Up in the trees, here’s the two Eagles who missed their chance.
