This picture was taken at the Skagit River where the eagles tend to winter due to the salmon runs. I would have missed this shot entirely if I hadn’t previewed pictures just taken and happened to notice that one picture had turned out blurry so I returned to the bridge where I’d been standing. There was another eagle in the trees right before me, even closer this time and it gave signs of pending departure. It was thrilling as I was able to capture all sequences over a matter of several pictures of the take- off phase from wings unfolding then straight up then this magnificent spread of wings. I do love eagles.
