Female Bald Eagle Fly By

For quite a while I've wanted to get a good picture of a bald eagle. I finally have a good start. I went down to Mason Neck State Park and saw a couple of eagles flying around. Unfortunately they were a bit too far away for a good picture. I then went up to the GW Parkway to check out the new eagles nest and was surprised by all the activity. The observers think they recently laid eggs. This is the female as she flew right by us maybe 20 feet in the air heading back to her nest.
