Bald Eagle portrait (c)

    Newer Older

    Bald Eagle portrait taken at the Hawk Conservancy in the uk. The Eagle was sitting outside on his perch but in very bright mid afternoon sun. 2 hours later though clouds came over and the light dimmed dramatically. We went back to the Eagles and after 5 minutes this same one flew out to his closest perch, I was snapping away and after about 15 minutes one of the keepers started bringing all the birds in for the day . Everytime he came to go past this Eagle would call out, I managed to get loads of head on shots and slight angle shots of this but one time and one time only he turned off to the side and I got the shot I wanted - a portrait that hints at the powerful nature of these birds but also shows off their elegance too. It made the whole day worthwhile!
