Juvenile Bald Eagle in Flight

I was walking a trail near the lake towards a lookout point. At first all I could see were Canada Geese, Trumpeter Swans and a couple American Wigeons when all of a sudden, this young Eagle comes flying in from my left. It didn't see me at first, but once it did, it banked back to the left and gained some height before flying over me some more. I liked how there was enough detail in the shot to see that it must have caught something not long before, with downy feathers still on it's talons!
