Bald Eagle in Flight

Sometimes you stumble upon a picture in the most unexpected places. While driving near Crater Lake, Oregon in spring I noticed a group of large birds on the side of the road ahead that were feeding on a thawing elk that had been hit in winter. I had my camera with me that day, and surprisingly, also had on a telephoto lens. As I passed, I notice that in the middle of the buzzards, there was a bald eagle. I did a you-turn and pulled off to take some shots. As you would expect, getting too close made the birds scatter and I panned with the eagle as it took off to capture this shot. The up-close and personal way the eagle is posed in this image makes it one of my favorites.
