[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

They can also be seen in the Netherlands in nature. Very rare, but in "Oostvaardersplassen" there is a nest of these beautifull creatures, I was told.

Check this site to watch:


This picture was taken during a show, not really in the wild. I only want to point out they do live in the wild in The Netherlands these days.

I'm just a photographer and wanted to share this wonderfull phenomenon with you.

Now let's all be very sensible about our Flora and Fauna treasures and protect their habitat!

Oh... This bird is actually about 3 years old. That is why the white feathers of the head and neck have not fully grown yet. But you can see it coming!

I used a monopod to make this picture.

Hope you enjoy...

Greetings Arjuna.

Hi Aruna,
Dit is prachtig werk, een heel mooi portrait. De scherpte springt van het scherm af. Heel mooi gedetaileerd en met een mooie achtergrond.
Leuk he om deze vogels te zien op de webcam.

Hi Arjuna,
Outstanding portrait of the eagle. Rich colours and sharp details. The POV and DOF are great as is the lighting. The smooth and neat BG is superb. Seems like a painting. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hallo Arjuna,
Prachtig portret van deze arend. Fantastisch scherp tegen een mooie achtergrond. Vooral het oog vind ik bijzonder. Goede compositie. Ik heb hem gezien in de Oostvaardersplassen, zij het vliegend op behoorlijke afstand en het was nog indrukwekkend.

Hello Arjuna , very impressive eagle portrait , good photo , TFS.

Hello Arjuna!
My congratulation because of this picture, especially if it was taken in the wild. This eagle species is also very rare and endangered in Poland, also it is possible to see it in the nature in only some regions.
But if it was taken in the wild what was the distance between you and the bird?
According to technique I have to say (one more time) that I really like this presentation. Very good portrait with very good details and DOF.
Once again my best congratulation and greetings from Lodz!

beautiful and sharp face! TFS Ori

Beautiful closeup. Nice focus and the reflections and clarity in the eye looks wonderful!
