I took this along the Mississippi river, near Fulton Il. There were over 100 eagles migrating along the river. Several of us were shooting out over the water, and I looked behind me and this guy flew right over our heads. Like the lighting on his wings - nice sun and blue skys.

The photo looks unedited. Nice snapshot, but not much going on. Some creative cropping or something might have helped.
