Bald Eagle Photos from, June 2002.
Before using our pictures, please review our usage policy.

The first photograph, with wings outstretched, is now available in a Pen & Ink Reproduction.

Photograph Notes:  With this picture, everything went right as we caught a timed sequence of the eagle just as it took off from the top of this tree. Click here to see a composite photo of the sequence. The first picture in the series was taken while the eagle was at rest at the top of one of the trees that they perched on. Just seconds later, the eagle took off. The next series of three pictures of this eagle flying were taken approximately .25 seconds apart so they spanned only about 1/2 second from start to finish. The first two pictures are pixel for pixel what I got from my camera. The last picture shows how far the eagle had flown in relation to the original tree that it was perched on. (June of 2002.)

In order to show the complete sequence of this eagle in flight, I created a composite image of all four of these photos of this eagle taking off. Each of the eagle images in this composite picture is placed exactly where it was in relation to the tree with the original picture series.
