Across the fields
We got so close to the young White-tailed Eagle that my wife began to think that it must have somehow flown off from the other side of the tree but I could see the brown patch in the tree the whole time. When it finally left the tree - an undignified tumble through the branches followed by a more elegant low flight across the fields ti the woods on the other side - I managed a couple of flight shots. This is the best of them. I felt a bit guilty for disturbing it but it's the closest I've ever been to a wild Eagle.
