[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The American Bald Eagle - The Bald Eagle has been the national emblem of the United States since 1782 and a spiritual symbol for native people for far longer than that. These regal birds arenít really bald, but their white-feathered heads gleam in contrast to their chocolate-brown body and wings. Look for them soaring in solitude, chasing other birds for their food, or gathering by the hundreds in winter. Once endangered by hunting and pesticides, Bald Eagles have flourished under protection.

Hi Bill,
A Truly beautiful portrait of the American Bald Eagle. Perfect sharpness and detail combined with eye and plumage clarity makes this an excellent composition. I Love the dark OOF BG which enhances your subject. Great work.
