Vertical Leap

As you can see from this recent photo, bald eagles are not only good flyers, they are also excellent jumpers.

Here the eagle wants to go up a few branches in the pine tree and takes advantage of not just those big wings, but it’s powerful legs as well.

Must be nice to be king of the skies!

  1. Phil, I have seen many – and I mean many – eagle pics and in plenty of various contexts. But I’ve not seen anything like this. Top Notch!!! Once again, a commendation to your keen eye. May I share this pic in a couple of professional wildlife photography sites, with full credit to you?
