The Swoop


"Wild Bald Eagle, Sparkly Landing on the tidal flats at Spanish Banks in Vancouver, BC Canada during low tide. Photo taken May 2005. I caught some motion out of the corner of my eye, and managed to turn just in time to snap this moment". Taken by Keta

A stunning picture. And really a stroke of good luck to capture such a bird in a swoop like that!

Wow - what a truly magnificent bird - great catch!!!!

Thanks folks! It WAS just such an unbelievable stroke of luck . . . every time I look at this shot I still get surprised. (you should have seen my face when I got the prints back; I had completely forgotten about that split second!)
I have another total fluke shot, in winter, an eagle landing in a tree. I'll forward that to Rich as well.

Keta, this is very impressive. A photo where so many thing could have gone wrong. Great job.
