While on the Currituck OBX to photograph the horses, this guy was just sitting on the beach, taking a rest I guess. He sat still for a minute then decided he'd had enough of being gawked at and lifted off. I was really happy with this liftoff image of him on his tiptalons! I shot a burst of frames as he got up and wheeled over the water and headed over the dunes toward the west.
I have several favorites but this one stood out.
I hope you enjoy it,
