Very nice capture Peter.
You call this one an oldie :)
It has been only two years ago you did take this shot :)
Serious now: Very good sharpness and composition and I also like the details in the fethers and colors very much.
Colors of the leaf of the tree do match wonderfully with those of the feathers of the eagle, but at the same time do give the background it a bit of a busy feeling and therefore the bird does not stand out aswell as I would like to have seen.
Very nice image anyway.
Thanks for sharing.
Warm regards and have a nice weekend,

How wonderful to find an eagle near your truck - here it would more likely be a dove. A very nice capture - showing off his face, plummage and size very nicely. Even his eye stands out. A nice, although busy, natural background with a beautiful blue sky.

Nice capture. I love eagles. They are hard to get a good shot of though as they are quite alert.

Peter, a very beautiful bird indeed, with an excellent pose.
I like composition too, as well as colors.

Good one, Peter! Great colors and detail. I agree with proframe on the background - mostly because it partially melts with same colored leafs - on the other hand - that's something you can do little about - other than cloning the background out. So it's great as it is. Cheers, Klaus
