Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) User: Brian  (See all photos - 896)
Canada (Ontario) Erieau - the eagle spotted a northern pike washed up on shore and couldn't pass up that meal. It was a large heavy fish but it managed to carry it aloft.

And so it does. The irony is that I didn't know until I was home what I had captured. It looked like it was carrying a piece of debris for the nest

I was very pleased. I had to run to the end of a pier to get as close as possible, popped a few shots of it on the beach then started firing as it took off. What it was carrying didn't look like a fish because it was so large and I didn't know for sure until I got home. Definitely a lucky sequence of shots.

So far I've got only a single shot of a bird in flight that I consider successful. You've just posted two in a row, and they're both showing good biology. It's not entirely luck!

Keep at it and practice on easy subjects like gulls, ducks and vultures to gain confidence and skill. Success will come.
