Butt shots are rude, but…

Nikon D300s, Sigma 50-500mm / f4.5-6.3 APO DG HSM

…I believe there is always an exception for any rule. To be honest, this is one of my favorite eagle photos this season. The Bald Eagle just came down from a tree above me, caught the fish right in front of me, and flew away with its prey. I never saw its face, just kept clicking despite it was a butt shot... It is the position in the frame, the subtile light, the spray behind the eagle, and the color of the ice that make me like it.
