[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Went to the refuge this morning and it was like a air show with Hawks and Eagles. At one time there were 2 eagles and 3 hawks all chasing each other. This Eagle was perch in a tree about 30 yards from me. When he took flight he glided right at me and ended up going right over me about 15 feet in the air. A 6 foot wing span looks pretty crazy when its about 10 feet over your head. Hope you had a good weekend,Thanks for looking
