Hello Harry,
What an amazing shot. The expression of the bird is impressive. It's sharp, beautiful BG, POV and composition.

Great take with all the action and expression included. I like the eye contacts. Perhaps he was aware of your appearance.


Hi Harry.
Wow, to get him flying low and towards you, absolutly stunning. Pin sharp, detail, composition, everything spot on.

Hi Harry

What a splendid shot of this impressive bald eagle!
I really love the pose in which you captured it as well as the POV from where this was taken - giving you that splendid and so rare encountered BG (especially in eagle shots).
The sharpness on the subject is impeccable and the sopt-on exposure made sure you had all the right colors here.
The composition created is also terrific!

Bravo and TFS

Hello Harry,
Fantastic Shot!! perfect colors and great sharpness, perfect moment.TFS best regards/Lawhill

Hi Harry,

Wow - the first thing that struck me was the eagle's face. Amazing. I really like this closeup of the eagle landing. Wonderful colors and details. The wings are awesome. And of course a beautiful setting.


They keep coming your amazing quality shots....

wow what a great POV. The frozen motion is great and the expression is very impressive



buena foto me gusta el contenido es muy bueno los colores la nitidez gracias por poner cosas buenas pedro

Hello Harry,
beautiful, amazing and also terrifying: I believed that the white was ice, but evidently is foam. It is an image absolutely perfect, how much distant are you?
Greeting, greetings indeed.
Have a nice Sunday,

without words, excellent photo

Hi Harry,
this is an excellent looking shot of that most majestic of all raptors.I have taken pictures on three separate occasions, bald eagles as well but never in good light.This photo has a great dynamic feeling to it.The photo has great colour,focus and detail in it.Well done Harry and a belated welcome to TrekNature,this photo is first rate. Bob

Hello Harry

A wonderful pose you have captured.Perhaps a little OE on the white feathers of the head.The Focus and details are excellent.Wonderful setting.TFS


Hi Harry
Exposure perfect (which is far from easy in dark birds with partly white plumage, in this case also whitish BG).
Compo perfect. Background a bit turbulent (but this is really to find some critique).
So only one major problem left: the map shows coordinates in eastern Siberia ;-)
GREAT PICTURE I defenitely have to go to Alaska (or Siberia?)

Excellent in all ways Harry, you definitely got a great shot on this one and all with a nice exposure. :)

The point of view and pose of the eagles makes this an unusual but very impressive shot. I looks as if it's running on the water. Well done.

Dear Harry, Marvelous shot, your site is simply superb and very inspiring. TFS.
with best regards.vab.
