I'd never been one for catching birds in flight, but this week, I caught one just on a whim.
It's a little blurry still (I only had 1000 shutter and focus was not auto or tracking)... but I kind of like the shot despite the empty space down below
An adult Bald Eagle in what I believe to be week 5 of incubating eggs. Its hard to tell if its a female or male, the two will trade off occasionally and their nearly identical birds.
Here the Eagle is either waiting on some food or a shift change...or both.
