Leaving Yosemite this afternoon I spotted an odd white spot on a rock in the Merced River Canyon. After doing a double take I realized it was a Bald Eagle and immediately pulled over and got out. I've captured a pair of Bald Eagles in Yellowstone National Park, but never around Yosemite, nor was I able to get so close.

Definitely not the best shot of a Bald Eagle, but it's one of my personal favorites I've shot.

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.
