This diving Bald Eagle locks onto its target as it sees a fish in
the water, and quickly banks to drop altitude and change
direction. Its eyes will never leave the fish as it constantly adjusts
the position of its body, flight feathers and tail to align
itself for a strike. The low sun angle in this flying photo
beautifully lights up all of the feathering on this Bald Eagle. This
diving image graced the cover of the fall 2001 Hawk Mountain News.
