Picture of the Day - "Close Encounter" - Nov. 2, 2106

Went for another trip down to the Canso Causeway today. It was supposed to be sunny with cloudy breaks but we got cold, grey clouds and mist instead. On the trip down we saw several hawks and eagles. One eagle was flying up the center mediam of the divided highway, at eye level. Once we got there, we were treated to the sight of over twenty eagles, in the trees and on the beach. We also saw a crow with a white stripe on one wing.One poor young eagle was pestered by a pair of crows for about 10 minutes. We got quite a few good pictures. Taken with Canon 70D, Sigma 150-600 mm @ 600 mm, 1/1250 sec, f/6.3 and ISO 800 (uncropped)
