Bald Eagle – Poised In Pursuit

Bald Eagle

Poised In Pursuit

The eagle fishing activity had been very sporadic that morning. Plenty of fish were along the water’s edge….just few takers.

Over the top of me, from behind, a rush of wind through feathers and wings repercussioned the air. Out of seemingly nowhere the eagle appeared, banked in my direction, and abruptly turned away. It was all I could do to get the fast fading bird framed. Its back and tail were all that could be seen….a remnant of what visually was.

Suddenly the bird wheeled again into the lens, dropped its tail and legs, raised the leading edge of its wings and poised frozen in a beautiful stall.
