Eagle in flight

After not seeing either of them for a while, one of the bald eagles surprised me today by flying in from the opposite direction than they usually come from. The sun was just rising above the tree-line, so the light was great, and the eagle circled around and perched in the tree right next to me. Of course, I blew the landing and takeoff shots, and my frozen fingertips were in excruciating pain, but I find it hard to care. What a great way to start the day!
