A Swing and a Miss

Even the most mature and experienced eagles miss and come up empty sometimes. As a photographer, this is a matter how many images I take and experience I have, I'm going to miss focus or mess up a setting or two. The eagle just keeps circling around and trying again. A great lesson for life.
