Eagle Inverted

We pulled off the road the other day in Anacortes, near Skyline Marina, to shoot a photo for a friend, and were surprised by a territorial fight going on in the sky above us by an eagle and some crows and what looked like another eagle.

Luckily, we had the camera ready (as that’s why we were stopping in the first place) and were able to get a few shots of the birds. At one point, one of the eagles did a roll and the photo above shows him completely upside-down.
