Photographer: Jerry Cahill, Tukwila

Photo taken: May 17, Blaine, Whatcom County

Photographer's description: “I was on a weekend getaway. I shot this with a Nikon D610 and 300 mm lens.”

Expert says: “Majestic bird + perfect moment + clean background = one crazy-good shot. This really is the most perfect bald-eagle takeoff moment that a photographer can capture and it definitely wouldn’t be the same photo if the blue sky was instead a forest of tree limbs. Wonderful photograph!”

-- Katie G. Cotterill, Seattle Times photo staff
