I photographed this Bald Eagle last week while driving the tour road at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.
The Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge hosts some of the largest bald eagle populations in Oklahoma. They even have a live Bald Eagle cam setup on one of the nests (view the camera).
How I Got The Shot
This Bald Eagle was perched in a tall dead tree located near the 4-corners parking area. It was on the north side of the road watching a flooded field to the south across the road. I took several photos and in this photo the Eagle is preparing to take off.
I had to open my door to my pickup and use the door frame to rest my camera on. I was using a Fujifilm X-T3 camera with a Canon EF 100-400 mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens attached with a Fringer EF-FX Pro. I was shooting in aperture priority mode (AV) with a shutter speed of 1/2700 of a second at f8 and the ISO at 800. White Balance was set on auto.
