    This is my most exciting shot EVER!!! I could hardly breathe when I zoomed in on this eagle sitting atop an electrical pole on the roadside at Jekyll Island, GA causeway!!! I called my husband after I got these shots and he thought I'd been in an accident I was talking so fast!
    I live in N GA, USA and I would LOVE to win the Tamron lens!!!!!

    Thanks for looking,

    I really took this photograph on the spur of the moment, which is really unlike me. I ended up having to crop a lot of it. The clouds were really amazing today and I really that that the movement/energy in the photograph contributed to the idea of "zoom."
