This is my first ever successful shot of a bald headed eagle. Although I've attempted to photograph them many times before, I usually had little success being close enough. Taken at the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, near Church Creek, Maryland. The Refuge includes approximately 27,000 acres, composed mainly of rich tidal marsh, freshwater ponds, mixed evergreen and deciduous forests. Blackwater Refuge is a haven to three recovering species: the endangered Delmarva fox squirrel, the migrant peregrine falcon, and the American bald eagle shown in the image. Canon EOS 7D and 100-400mm lens.
