[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today I went with a friend to Idaho for a little bit so we could see the American Bald Eagle in its natural environment. I wanted a unique angle, so I stood as close as I could beneath the raptor and looked up. I tried to make up for the dismal lighting (it started to snow as we began scouring the area for the eagles).

I've never seen so many eagles in one place and made sure to get as many shots as I could. Lighting, as I mentioned, was a problem, but that didn't negate the bit of release I had, forgetting however briefly the uncertainty that has plagued me as of late.

I wish I could enhance this more, but this was my first eagle taken in the wild where I can actually tell it is an eagle!
