    ‘A Shot Thru Trees’

    Please view full-sized for best details and feel free to share.

    I pulled into a parking lot by the Merrimack River in Hooksett, NH looking for Eagles in the trees and ducks in the water. I was nearing the end with no luck sighted, when just over a snowbank, I spotted a BAEA that was quite close… I’d say 30-40 feet. Unfortunately it was almost totally concealed by the many trees between us. I backed up… moved forward… then back again… until I found a clear shot thru the tree branches of the birds head.

    I would like to mention that in Photoshop I removed a branch that was too close to the birds head as I found it distracting to the viewer.
