Flight of the Eagle

Flight of the Eagle

This morning, June 7, 2013, a mature Bald Eagle just after taking off from a tree branch at the Ridgefield NWR in Washington state.  At first I thought it was hunting but after making a huge, low, circular flight pattern, it scooped up some nesting materials from the ground with its talons in mid-flight.  Canon 5D Mark III, 1/3200, f5.6, ISO 800, Canon 400mm f5.6L lens.
