[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Large crop of the wings to focus in on the eye. Many times that is hard because these fly away so fast when you point the camera at them.
(I did it too Klaus)

Hi Doug,

I'm always interested to the bald eagle picture, but this shot is kind different,it has unique angle of shot and also unique pose. Just like you say the eye look so sharp and detailed, excellent shot!

Nice shot. Very sharp too!
I've tried to take such picture from a bald eagle, but I had less luck.
Well done !!

Hi Doug.
I like this crop for impact, well done. The eye is so piecing, excellent capture, sort of feels like you are being hunted.
Colour and detail great.
Wonderful image

Hi Doug,
What a dramatic shot of the eagle! It looks as if it is about to swoop down on you. There is intensity in the eagle eye, outstanding exposure and beautiful rich, natural colors. Exceptional detail on the feathers.
