I was really just trying to get a shot of the clouds hanging out over Looking Glass Rock from the Blue Ridge Parkway when this bird flew across my view.
I'd like to say it was an eagle, or at least a hawk, but I cannot be certain since he zipped away quicker than a blink.
I did make it to the stream a little later and managed to land two pretty brown trout, all wild and sparkly with fall color.
And here's an artsy shot of a wiggling rainbow caught in the same creek the week before. Too bad he would not stay still for the camera, but you can tell it was a fish.
