[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After a morning of feeding in the rain and river, many bald eagles took shelter in the woods for most of the day. They gathered in small groups in particular trees. Maybe they are just gregarious or else those trees provide good vantage points. There they regained their usual clean, distinctive appearance. If you have been following my eagle sequence then you can see what I mean. They were looking pretty scruffy and soggy. This one looks mighty handsome and even gentle in this frontal portrait.

Hi Evelynn

A great shot - really good pose and detail against an excellent BG. Well seen and captured.


This is such a crisp and clean shot, you really have a knack for wildlife photography.

i love his environment's all green colour tones,

Hello Evelynn

Piercing eye contact.
The plumage detail is terrific.
The rich green surroundings are lovely,and contrasts the pie-bald plumage well.
Excellent detail right down to the lichens on the branch.
Nicely done.

Hi Evelynn,
another top-class shot!
Very good composition.
Superb eye-contact.
Great sharpness.

Very well done,

Hi Evelynn, splendid bird in superb pose, good composition with lgreat sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Evelynn,
I think you used the best words to describe the beauty of this bird....mighty handsome. But what else can you expect with eagle eyes. :)

Not only a beautiful bird, but also a beautiful photo. The DOF is superb and the details are of a high standard. I like the subtle difference in the brown colors and how perfectly white his head looks. The square crop does justice to the photo and gives a very relaxed photo to look at.

Hello Evelynn,
WOW!! Another great capture of this magnificent bird,
superb sharpness, depth of feild, details and
clarity, beautiful colors and lovely light,
well done.

Hello Evelynn,
I'm following your eagle sequence:-).
Once again an excellent image. This one is a bit closer and there's more communication compared to the former. Nevertheless I prefer the one I already critiqued.
But..a very good image indeed!

Very fine image of the eagle, and well composed.

I just read that the largest number of Bald Eagles in the U.S. is in Florida, which surprised me since I have not seen any there on my annual winter trip.

hello Evelynn
