Wish I'd seen the Photo of the Week thread in early August...
3 weeks ago

Because I'd have entered one of these shots taken August 4.  My wife, dog, and I had canoed down to the end of a mountain lake and were drifting in under a dead tree in which a bald eagle pair were perched.  I had the camera out and had been taking shots of them roosted in the tree when suddenly the male hopped up and took off: I guess we were too close or maybe he was going to where he could better watch their chick (got shots of the chick a day later).   70-300mm VR.

A few minutes later the hen (I presume the hen...it was the larger bird) also hopped around and flew off to follow the mate.
