Bald Eagle - Haliaeetus leucocephalus - the Sea Eagle.
Cabinet Mountain Range - Montana
This eagle was coming straight at me, eye level. Suddenly - within feet - it made a strafing dive, then instantly pulled up right over my head! Blindly aiming, I stuck the camera up in the bird's direction and fired ... Handheld.

The male bald eagle is seen sitting in the nest on the left - attentive and astute. His mate, the female, is at his immediate left ... hidden and obscure. Can you spot her?
Hint : the "Eye of the Eagle."
