[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here is another shot of one of the Eagles I have been seeing at the Refuge. Some mite think the BG is a little distracting and I mite agree but I do like how he looks on the green moss covered branch. That's one of the things I really enjoy about shooting wild life, Is the challeng of getting that one great shot and some times even a moving subject in that perfect setting. Years ago I never thought photography would be so fun,interesting and challenging and rewording. Thanks every one for looking. Have a great weekend.

I have added anouther shot of this guy in the work shop.

I agree, he looks almost regal sat there on his mossy perch! Personally i don't mind the background at all. Excellent detail and well composed, great to hear how much you enjoyed taking this.

Hello Tom,

The bird is very well shown in your photo. I like the green ferns from the branch as they make a pleasent contrast with the brown of the bird. The sharply shown bird and perch looks very well against the blurry background.

Thank you for sharing,
