American bald eagle flies over Shenandoah River State Park

This eagle was flying over the Shenandoah River near the low water bridge south of the park at 2:11 pm today. After it flew up the river deeper into Shenandoah River State Park I drove to the three bends overlook and waited for about half an hour but didn’t see it return. – Dan McDermott

  1. Beautiful shot. I have tried to photograph flying eagles but I never got a photo this good. Years ago I worked to ban DDT. It paid off and now the eagles have returned around the Great Lakes. Then I wrote a book, The Dynamic Great Lakes.
