[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken on the primitive road called Empire Creek which led from the concrete highway to my wilderness cabin. I am standing on the road near a wetland pond and beaver den...about 80 feet below the bird which is perched in the top of an almost dead pine tree which stands in front of the Lake Tribe Chiefs (Native American) home. It is reservation land.

The image was shot with an Olympus E-100-RS 1.5 MP camera at full 12X optical zoom and further cropped which makes it a somewhat noisy image...but in those days, noise was not so much of a factor.

I had this image printed and hung on my darkroom wall...I was not using the darkroom any longer but for mounting prints done in digital. It never left that room. I still have the original print hanging in my closet here in the city.....other than that, no person has ever seen this image:-) This is the first time I think...I could be wrong, that I have posted it anywhere on the Internet.

Hello Bob,
That's my dream bird :). Good to see an American Bald Eagle, which I saw for the first time in Kennedy Space Center Orlando, FL, USA
way back in 1988. It was exactly like this (I mean POV). TFS
