Eagle Flying Above Hills Near Himeji, Japan

Eagle Flying Above Hills Near Himeji. View from Mount Shosha. Hyogo Prefecture, Kansai region, Honshu Island, Japan

“Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.” This is almost Murphy’s law photo. I tried to shoot this eagle while it was flying above me. Unfortunately it was so fast and so close that I couldn’t make any decent shot of it. As soon as I gave up and decided to shoot a range of hills and mountains the eagle started flying right in front of me. I waited for some time for the clear shot of the mountains, pressed the button… and I found this eagle right on the picture. D’oh! It gave me a couple of minutes of laugh at the situation. And at the end I’ve got a nice photo of eagle anyway.

    Haunted by luck! That’s not too bad, is it?
    You got a very fine image here.

    That’s true, Carsten! As old saying goes “Every coin has two sides” and “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” :)
