How I Got The Shot: Young Bald Eagle In A Dead Cottonwood Tree

I was traveling on the auto tour road at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma when I spotted a pair of Bald Eagles. They were in a large dead Cottonwood Tree. This young Eagle didn’t fly away when I drove up, so I got lots of photos.

I was shooting from inside my pickup, but I couldn’t use my beanbag because the Eagle was directly above me. I was hand-holding my camera and lens.
