About This Image

this bald eagle had landed in a local field, along with several other eagles, including 2 immature eagles nearby, which we think were the offspring of this one.

I like that you can see a bit of the eagle's reflection in the water in the field.
Captured from open vehicle window, from quite a distance, with the telephoto lens, hand held.

Hi Karen, many thanks for the nice comments. They do get quite dirty looking sometimes in wintertime.

Wow, its white feather are getting rather muddy! Guess it will have to take a dip in some clean water! Lol! Excellent sharp detail as it turned its head for a profile.

thanks for the nice comments, Jas. Yes, they really do have a certain "look" about them, - infact I always think they look quite angry. Suddenly realized I haven't replied to your previous email. sorry about this, will write soon. hope you and yours and auntie are all fine.

What a great shot of the eagle Alandra! I agree with you regarding the reflection in the water. I just love the profile of his head; it is very sharp and the eye is quite piercing. He really is looking very superior! :)

thankyou again Anne, for your nice comments. Glad you like it. Would have liked to have waited to see if the eagles took off, but we were parked on a very narrow shoulder next to the ditch beside the main highway, so weren't able to remain there very long, as vehicles were speeding past and "rocking" our vehicle. I was amazed that this eagle seemed to have heard the "click" from the camera shutter, from that distance, as it turned its head around at the sound of it. What hearing and what eyesight they have!

Great capture Alandra. The textures of the grass and the reflection is wonderful. Clarity is tops as it shows the eagles feathers and facial features so nicely.
