An eagle finishing up a meal on this nest.
500mm was too much lens next to the boat! :)

From AT Through-Hike Send-off
Ron, the park ranger and official trail starter, was nice enough to take this shot for us at the beginning of the "Approach" trail.
"Don't worry Mom's and Dad's, we have it all under control!"
Night settles in.
After having everyone sit on it, the folded balloon has been successfully stuffed into its bag for transport.
From Hot Air Balloon Adventure
Grant and helper, seemingly under Mike's direction, tug hard on the balloon to draw it into a thin line for folding.
This turned out to be a popular landing site as two other balloons, with baskets in the background, had already set down here.
It's really taking shape and about to be righted.
Mike is praying she made the right decision to do this.
