Bob's work as a newspaper photographer has it's share of sad moments, but here's a story with a happy ending:
"I was invited to photograph the release of a young bald eagle that had recovered from an injury after treatment by the West Virginia Raptor Rehabilitation Center. The eagle was an immature male, less than 1 year old. The bird weighed several pounds and had a wing spread of about six feet. It was released from the deck of a home on Cheat Lake and promptly flew off along the shoreline, to find a new home in the wild."

Editor's notes: Bob's camera can shoot 8 frames per second. The eagle was so anxious for freedom, it was out of sight in just a few frames. I made the background paper by scanning the packaging behind the Tim Holtz mask and then copying and pasting the black flourish on to my cardstock.
