Bald Eagle

As I arrived to a lake I saw this Bald Eagle swooping through the air, down towards a flock of ducks, and the ducks took off. I couldn't tell if the eagle caught one or not, but the look of his swooping motion, and subsequent break off maneuver and flight back to a distant grouping of trees was magnificent to see. Only after he was perched was I able to get some photos. Considering how far away he was, I'm luck to get this shot at all.
