Bald Eagle Over Pond

I spied its distinctive soaring flight across the pond, almost half a mile away. It was circling, apparently looking for prey on the ground.

I grabbed my camera and lowered the top sash of the window, hoping it would come my way. Sure enough, losing interest in the hunt, it headed west in the direction of the Cambridge Reservoir, flying directly over my house.

When it was right overhead, sadly, the camera balked. The Bald Eagle was now flying too fast relative to the camera for the auto focus to track properly.

I was disappointed, of course, but thrilled to see the great raptor again.

The date was November 10, 2012. The four photos were taken at 12:30 pm, just seconds apart.
