This Young Bald Eagle was feeding on a Snow Goose at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. A vehicle was driving the tour road, and this caused the Bald Eagle to take flight.
How I Got The Photo – Young Bald Eagle In Flight
I parked on the auto tour road while watching the Eagle feed on the Snow Goose from a distance. When it took flight I started photographing the bird. This occurred on the section of the tour road between the entrance and Tuff Boat Ramp.
I had my camera and lens resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.
