American Bald Eagle Takeoff Sequence

Posted on Jun 20, 2015 in color, photography

During my return visit to the American bald eagle nest on the Connecticut River just north of Brattleboro, VT, I was able to observe the adult bald eagle taking off from its nest. This sequence of photos is my favorite of the day. There was something incredible about the light and the movement of the bird’s wings during takeoff that combined for a special sequence of photos.
