Eagle Eye .... way up there!

It's always on my list to photograph an eagle; we often see them here but catching them with a camera lens is challenging.  On a drive this week, we took a lane we hadn't driven before.  As we anticipated, it ended in someone's barnyard.  On the way, though, we saw two full farm ponds.  Canada geese are paired and settling down; far above in a bare snag sat the eagle.  Two problems: the sun was almost directly overhead, so the eagle was in its own shadow; the branch was about 30 feet high which tested my 400m lens to the max.

Still a neat shot and I'm glad you shared.

Pretty! We have lots of Eagles here and I've only managed to get one clear image in five years.
