The Launch

I managed to capture this image of this eagle taking off from the tree it was perched on. It all happened so fast that only captured a few of the images in focus before I lost focus as it flew almost directly over my head. It was a pretty sweet moment. You can see a bit of a juvenile that was perched on a limb in the background.
