[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a juvenile bald Eagle photograph at Seabeck a small town in Washington state in United States. These eagles rarely are seen sitting in water.
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 aren’t 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.
Thanks for viewing.

Great shot of this bird of prey.

Thanks for sharing.

Hello Muhammad! Amazing eagle. Wonderful scene, pose and scenery, fine background. Good sharpness. Superb focus. Well done!

It is common to see photographs of juvenile bald eagles on this site, and this is a big catch. Just needs some final focus on the bird, but I think with some retouching that can be fixed. Congratulations.

Bonjour Muhammad,
Agréable publication valorisant relativement bien le sujet.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

impressive beak of this big bird - nice pic!

Hi Muhammad,very good capture of this young eagle,perfect colors and soft details because the distance but still an excellent shot.Have a nice week and thanks,Luciano

Hello Muhammad Shaukat,
A nice shot of this fine looking juvenile Bald Eagle. I remember when they were almost all gone here in Ohio, but as your notes already eluded to, they have made a wonderful come back due to protection.
You were fortunate to be able to photograph it in the water and posed so nicely. We get a great look at it's beautiful markings and colors as well as it's facial features. Detail is just a tad soft in the facial area, but still a very presentable photo.
Hope you don't mind, I would like to see if I could regain some of the facial detail in a WS.

Hi Mohammed,
Good composition though the bird is a bit OF.

Ciao Muhammad, great capture of superb eagle, wonderful colors, splendid light and excellent clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
