If you want to get the shot you have to always be ready. I was driving to a spot in search of photographs when I came across this eagle flying low over Lexington avenue. I quickly pulled over (safely) and grabbed the camera. Since I was already going to shoot, I had the camera on the front seat.
This eagle only stopped long enough to pick on the road kill. It took off and landed on a nearby building so I drove to a better vantage point just as the golden sunrise lit the scene.
