[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken in Higgens Point in Idaho. It's true my shots aren't perfect, but I did the best I could with the lens I have. The lighting was terrible, but I hate doing too much Photoshopping. I try to take them as I get them.

This fellow was across a road, up part of a cliff, and in a tree. I zoomed in and cropped close. There are actually two of them, but since only tail feathers could be seen in the other I took them out.

Angrybone is correct. They are not perfect shots, but I know folks who have never seen a wild eagle, so this is my chance to share. It's true that many of my shots are better than this, but I won't apologize for doing my best - and at treknature, it's about having fun, sharing, and learning new things from the wonderful folks who come here.

Thanks for looking and I appreciate and welcome all comments. Happy Holidays to all!

Hello Kathy,
Merry Christmas, this is an very nice composition with good details. This is a fine quality image and something to be very happy with Kathy.

I would love to photograph ANY eagle...blurred or shadowed or out of focus.
This is a lovely composition! Good work, Kath! :)
Never ever ever let anybody take away the joy of photography. This is your soul's song! :)

Hello Kathy,
Good use of thirds and excellent POV. The aperture seems appropriate, but a slightly slower shutter speed may have given better exposure. Still a very powerful image of a beautiful bird. TFS
