Description
Having watched this mature Bald Eagle in the act of preening for a while, it finally took off over the waters of the Lackawaxen River in Pike County, Pennsylvania. Difficult to follow due to the tree-lined banks of the river, I was lucky enough to capture the bird as it appeared briefly in my line of sight. Several quick clicks of the shutter produced results beyond my expectations. Looking like a Boeing B-52 Stratofortress bomber, the last in a sequential series of photos which I took of the bird depicts it in flight over the river below. With a wingspan of 5.9-7.5 feet, the Bald Eagle is surely a raptor and bird of prey which can utilize all of it's inherent features to secure a meal with swift and precise actions and maneuvers.
