Superbe portrait. Très net. C'est une image saisissante de voir cet aigle "réparé".
Bonne idée d'avoir inclu l'histoire aussi!

I believe that I saw this case on tv, some time ago.
Great job on this wonderful portrait, clearly showing the prosthesis and wonderful eye on Brian.
It is somewhat reassuring to know that there are still people who care, unlike the person who did this damage in the first place.
Well done and thank you for sharing his wonderful story.

That is one cool eagle and the doc that fixed him up.
It is always nice to get a second lease on life.
Thanks for sharing.
The picture is nicely framed. However, I wish the background was all black instead of having the blue sleeve of the person holding the bird. Other wise, great picture and a wonderful story.

Je souhaite longue vie à cet aigle victime de la bétise des hommes. Il a eu de la chance d'être ainsi secouru. Sinon une mort affreuse l'aurait emporté.

Very interesting picture!
I said interesting rather that pretty because it's not the way we normally want to see this bird.
Tehcnically the picture is supersharp and the perfect exposure shows lots of details in its feathers.
Artistically the tight cropping brings attention on its beak and minimize the presence of the blue dressed person holding the bird. That blue is not an added value to the picture since it artistically disturb. But considering the story that came with the picture, it help to understand that there is peoples devoted to the care of different species of animal.
Not the prettiest blad eagle picture, but a beautiful documentary work. TFS

Photo saisissante et histoire touchante. La bétise des hommes n'a donc aucune limite ?
Bravo pour ce cliché parfaitement piqué.
