Bald Eagle by Scott Zimmerman

Bald Eagle by Scott Zimmerman

Here's Scott Zimmermann's story on getting this photo: "When driving down a somewhat busy 2-lane state highway in rural northwest Ohio, if you see a Bald Eagle drop into a field 15 feet off the road, should you swerve wildly into an open spot on the berm? No, probably not. But I did, and this was the reward."
