Bald eagle fly-by

I wish I were better prepared for this shot. He was right above us in a tree. Before I could get lined up for a good shot of him in the tree, he took off. I didn't have the camera set up for catching flying birds, but I did the best I could. The bigger you view it, the worse it looks. Better luck next time. At least I got what I got. Anyone can take a shot of a baldy perching in a tree at the zoo. It's another thing to get a shot of a real, wild eagle in flight!
