Great portrait under difficult backlight conditions.

Hi Tom,magnificent capture whit the best wings position and a perfect exposure for the best details,great timing and great result,i like it! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Bonjour Tom,
L'opposition sur l'arrière plan est remarquable et valorise bien le sujet malgré une profondeur de champ, me semble-t-il, insuffisante principalement sur le corps de l'oiseau.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Wow, this is great view to see the wings of the great eagle..lovely image. tfs.

Hello Tom,
fantastic sharpness for an in-flight bird. Lightning is amazing too, I can hardly understand where the light comes from. Nicely framed.
Finally, this species is beautiful and its attitude is majestic.
Tfs, Philippe.
