Default Bald Eagle Swooping

It was the first sunny day in awhile so I headed over to my favorite refuge to see what I could see. I was generously rewarded with a beautiful opportunity to photograph a mature Bald Eagle that was swooping back and forth right in front of me. I am assuming that it was checking out a downed duck or something in the water. I could not see what the Eagle was interested in but it allowed me a fantastic chance to get some really nice shots. I hope you enjoy them too. I was using my D300 with the Nikon 200-400mm VR w/ 1.4TC hand held. I need to get back in the gym that puppy got heavy fast. Steve

Here is a link to the entire series if you are interested. Thanks for looking.
