Royalty in Flight II

Royalty in Flight II

This is another frame from the series I took on March 3, 2016, at the Ridgefield NWR.  This is the final picture in the burst that captured the Bald Eagle taking off from a tree with dark clouds behind and sweet light on the bird.  I do wish I hadn’t blown the whites on the head but I do like the pose.

For those interested in viewing the initial posting of the bird banking as it left the perch: Royalty in Flight I
