[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This morning I went into the Lamar Valley in Yellowstone National Park to see what I could see, Lucy was not well and Papa wanted a rest. When I got there I found the usual Bison and Pronghorns but with the nice fall colors all around. Then a pair of Golden Eagles that were soaring overhead landed near, but not too near so this is cropped a great deal, but when I returned, in my E mail, I find that Luis would come back as an Eagle if he could so, I dedicate this image to him. Luis is such a talented photographer and good Amigo, Hola my friend.

Hello Rick

What an interesting concept,returning as some sort of animal.
The composition is lovely and natural and the vivid blue sky makes a perfect backdrop for this Golden eagle.
The statuesque pose is superb.
A wonderful capture.

Hi Rick,

This Eagle has a very self-important posture! I guess he has the right since he is such a beautiful and impressive bird. I like the natural setting. A wonderful dedication to Luis - I would like you to take a picture of him if he returns as an Eagle.


Ah...Well there ye be eh? A fine one Rick...and you have been a SUPER hit on my home page as well...I have been doing all of your Mendo shots...gosh I love TN...We have a camaraderie and god friends who know how to take images..what more but a good cigar and a cup of fine wine could a man ask? GREAT seeing you in the north again.

Hello Rick,
Nice capture of this golden eagle, good sharpness and depth of field, nice natural colors, lovely blue sky and nice pose.

Hello Rick.

Very nice photo and very interesting "story"... :-)

Come and see my gallery.


Hi Rick!
I'm back!
Tis is a lovely shot, love the catchlight in the eye!

Hi Rick,
I would have been very impressed to see this majestic bird! Look at the way he poses and the way he looks at you...! You chose good composition in excellent POV that makes the bird looks bigger than in real :)! Excellent picture!
