Tight Turn

Tight Turn

July 18, 2013, at the Ridgefield NWR.  This mature Bald Eagle was pestering some waterfowl in Rest Lake only about a hundred feet away.  I caught this pose when it made a sharp turn to make another sweep of the ducks.  It never did catch anything during this behavior but I was very happy with the shot.  Update: This image was awarded “Honorable Mention” in the 2013 Ridgefield NWR photo contest.

Canon 5D Mark III, 1/1250, f5.6, ISO 1600, Canon 400mm f5.6L lens.
