Stunning photography. A frozen at the precise time when the grip of this magnificent bald eagle leave his perch, with the look of fixed animal, on a target outside the box image. The beautiful blue sky is a curtain of glory and barbed wire makes us think that this martial bird of prey, leaving just a military camp. Congratulations, friend!!!!
