The typical fall Spanish Moss and soft red colors worked well to highlight the big bird flying by.

I’m lucky I didn’t zoom in closer. I don’t think they would be any better than these. I prefer having the perspective of the swamp around the bird.

Great Blue Heron in a Cypress swamp.

On A Mission, Bald Eagle

I watched the Eagle pass me over the marsh, then lost him behind a nearby tree.

I looked over but he never came out the other side. I finally spotted him turn and go into his dive.

I knew he had a reason, and he was diving to the far side of this rice field. Could be worse though, he might have flew off.

He must have spotted some fish because he pulled up low passing over the water.

The shadows covered those huge talons from a good shot, but he was reaching out.

You can see it was a small fish still a pretty good catch I though.
