From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
This is a multi-shot sequence showing a single Bald Eagle in transition from level flight to attack mode. These five frames were captured in about one second. The sequence begins with right-most image, in which you see the bird is looking to its right, where it has spotted its prey in the Mississippi River below. In the following four images, you can follow as it changes direction of flight and begins to accelerate and lose altitude.
As you gain experience in wildlife photography, you will become familiar with the methods and habits of the animals you track. I watch eagles in flight for the maneuver shown in the rightmost image - a bird pulling up and changing direction is almost always about to attack a target below.
