Bald Eagle | Pygargue à tête blanche | Haliaeetus leucocephalus: I find that few birds are particularly interesting when photographed overhead, but I suppose Bald Eagles might be an exception, especially when they get very close.
This particular individual and several of its colleagues were flying all day just over or next to a short path parallel to the Fraser River in Richmond, BC, Canada. I would have liked to take a photo of it swooping down to grab a fish, but I was not that lucky. Maybe next time!
Taken with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED. Not baited, called in or set up.
