Eagle Window

I bought a new car a month ago and one of my "must-have" features was a moonroof. Not to soak up the sun or to get a breeze rolling through the car, but so I can get shots like this when I'm rolling through a wooded area looking for eagles.

This image and the one that follows were taken last week at the oft-visited site of Lock and Dam 18 near Burlington, Iowa. The following day the light was better and I was set up on a tripod waiting for eagles to pass overhead with their fish. The thing I like about this image is the detail visible in the feathers.
