This was last year in Florida. My son insisted on taking me out in the boat (not a yacht, by the way, but a bumpy riding bass boat) to try to get some photos of eagles he had seen nesting beside a lake near his house. This was still during my Nikon days, so there I was, trying to steady my D200 with the enormous 400/f2.8 lens, and not fall out of the boat. One eagle flew out of the nest, as if on cue; just as I was about to attempt a shot without dropping the camera or falling out of the boat, he very quickly turned the boat around shouting, "there goes a rocket!" Sure enough, there had been a launch from the space center, and the shot below was all I thought I would be getting. But he turned back, and the eagle put on a pretty good show for us. I loved the light reflecting up off the water to light his wings from below, and the big fluffy cloud on that side of the lake made a wonderful backdrop. The branch in his talons is one he was taking to the nest, not a part of the tree on the bottom.
