[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This handsome fellow was perched atop a tree directly across from the highway. I always keep my camera at my side while driving and fortunately had my Minolta 100-300mm APO attached.
Slightly cropped, but otherwise it's as it was shot.

Hard not to comment on a fine Eagle perching, the snowy branch really sets this on, exposure well handled, it would have been easy to blow out the white or lose the detail in the feathers, well done.


The color of the bird stands out amongst fairly monochromatic landscape and the picture is good. I feel only that the space on the right is vacant and detail less. a vertical composition would have done wonders. What do you think.

Excellent photo of this Bald Eagle. The colours are very beautiful and the composition is great. Good sharpness and details in the feathers. Splendid blue sky.

Hello Tim,
What an excellent capture and what a great setting. The frost covered tree with the monarch at the top, simply splendid. Thanks fo sharing this wonderful capture.

Hi Tim
Your Eagle is really cool looking perched on top of the frosty evergreen. (sorry no pun intended). I really like the colours here, the dark brown feathers and icy blue sky compliment each other well. Well done.

This is a rather nice shot of the Bald Eagle. You were lucky to be ready, the frosted tree really adds to the shot.
Nicely done,
