Bald Eagle Flying Over Treetops

I have been posting photos of birds I photographed at the City Lake in Charleston, Arkansas. The reason I travel to this lake this time of year is to photograph the Bald Eagles. Here is my photo of a Bald Eagle flying over the treetops near the lake.

I was in the parking lot using my pickup as a blind, photographing this Eagle with my camera and lens resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.
