This the emblem of USA, in french there is a word joke that it's impossible to translate. Female or male, black or white head, we prefere a democrate... I am canadian so excuse me if you are republicain.

Hello Marie

A very lovely capture of this bald eagle.I saw five in the area on Friday,but they were all immature,with juvenile plumage.I managed to get a couple of shots from a distance.
This portrait is very good,with wonderful feather detail.
The colour of the beak is terrific.
It really shows well against the dark BG.


I love the political commentary and the juxtaposition of the fierce looking eagles. Clever. Thanks,

Hi Marie,
these two photos show well this eagle's head and it sure is a powerful symbol to use for any country that has them.I do not like politics and as a Canadian have no preference but only a hope that who ever runs the USA or Canada has integrity and is straight up and honest with the people and tries to do what is right.I love the sight of these magnificent birds and I have seen this winter a pair of them here where I live.Your photo on the left hand side is a little sharper than the one on the right and both of them show this powerful bird off well.Thank you,Marie for these photos-I like them! Bob

Hi Marie.
Very cute portraits of the majestic birds. Impressive crops, excellent details. It seems to me it would be a bit better to increase the contrast level and to slightly raise the image of the left bird. TFS and best regards.

bonjour Marie

la politique vu différement, beau portrait de ces deux aigles
dans les deux photos c'est surtout celle de droite que j'aimes, TFS

Bonjour Marie,

Une belle paire de têtes que tu nous présentes aujourd'hui, de belles couleurs naturelles et ce format nous fait apprécier le sérieux et la détermination dans l'oeil de ce Pygargue. Bien fait!

Hi Marie,
Wonderful double shot and a clever political statement. You have made yourself very clear that they all look the same, whatever angle you look at them from. Great details on the plumage and the yellow beak look gorgeous. Very nicely composed and presented. Kudos.

Hello Marie, fine portrait shots good level of detail and exposure was perfect for the whites. Good POVs and compositions. TFS rgds Necip.

Interesante comentario y bonita fotografía.

Oh wow, a political statement on TN? Okay I like both Hillary and Obama (the shots that is) but I really do think you should give John McCain equal coverage. These are both good clear shots of the Bald Eagle. I've only seen these things from a distance. Interesting presentation.

Thanks, John

bonjour marie
veux-tu dire qu'il risque d'y avoir une serieuse prise de bec!!!
beaucoup de details dans ces deux portraits.est-ce pris en pleine nature?

Hi Marie,

Two nice pictures of the Bald Eagle. Really nice texture in the plumage and nice detail in the eye and beak. I love the colours and the dark backdrop is great.

Voilà un joli portrait de cet aigle mythique.
Bonne journée.

Hallo Marie
A remarkable portrait of this great symbol or emblem from the USA. Great close-up of these eagles. They make fantastic 'models' for photographs. Eye and beak are captured well. This bird has a very funky look. I enjoyed the political humour portrayed in this one. A very neat image. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Fine captures and funny comparison. Well done! Cheers, Klaus

Wonderfull photo, fantastic humor!

Bonjour Marie,
quel rapace magnifique, quel regard, quelle prestance !!!
Ce n'est pas étonnant que les États-Unis aient choisi ce splendide aigle pêcheur comme emblème
Le montage est très réussi, mais je marque une petite préférence pour " au bas mot" ......:o) attention je parle de photo et pas de politique
Bravo pour cette belle présentation et pour cette belle métaphore.
Si j'avais du présenter nos politiques Belge, j'aurais certainement choisi des oiseaux plus opportunistes comme les vautours ou des insectes comme des cafards, punaises, chancres ou autre parasite ....certes c'est beaucoup moins élégant mais quel réalisme !!!

Hello Marie,

This is an excellent study of the heads of these magnificent birds!
Do you know, I think Obama is showing just a little more agression than Hilary! What do you think?

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hello My Friend,
Two portraits of the majestic Bald Eagle, your images are great with superb details in the plummage. These great birds are making a wonderful come back after thier numbers got quite low. Merci Marie.

Bonjour Marie,
Si je ne me trompe pas, c'est ton premier montage photo que tu nous présente? Quand je suis allée à l'Économuséum, il n'était pas là... J'aime bien le clin d'oeil humoristique et l'exposition naturelle des photos. Bien vu!
J'ai hâte que tu reçoives ton extender :)!

Hi Marie,
hehehe, as I see everywhere is some politics ;)
Very nice presetation. I like this collage - especially that the eagle is a symbol of USA :) Good idea and perfect final effect!
Best greetings,

Helo Marie,
This bird is so gorgeous and I love your presentation. Excellent close captures showing intricate details very well and in beautiful colours. Well done!
Many thanks, Ulla

Hi Marie,

Two wonderful profiles of the Eagle. Unfortunately I don't get to see them here. Lovely colors and good details of this majestic bird. I must say, as an American, I could do without the political commentary. But I forgive you :-) - I know it is tempting.


Hi Marie
Good one!
Who knows who will be elected, it's all up in the air...no pun intended LOL. Only time will tell. Good capture Marie, have a nice weekend.
TFS Janice

Bonsoir Marie,

Deux très beaux portraits de cet aigle. Bonnes netteté, lumière et couleurs.

A fine and funny caricature, Marie! Excellent, crisp shots of these somewhat rare and always beautiful eagles. Great POV. As for the elections, we're stuck with another couple months of posturing and politicking, attacks and aggrandizement. No matter which your side of the aisle, it can be a trial :)
