This bald eagle lives in a nest by a lake near my hometown. I often visit them with the hopes of being able to capture them in action. This day, I watched as this eagle took flight from its nest across the lake, and make its way to a tree near a neighboring parking lot. I quickly got in my car in hopes that it would still be perched on that tree. Luckily, it waited for me to arrive and allowed me to get numerous shots of it posing on this branch with a beauitful blue sky in the background.
