Hello Jeroen,
I think to see an eagle from this point of view is a rare event.
You captures it in an impressive way.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Jeroen,
Another marvelous composition. Wonderful species of birds. It is a perfect photo taken from a good POV. Splendid light......The details are fantastic. Very sharp and excellent natural colors. The birds of prey, are one of my favorite specie. You managed very well this shoot with the bird in flight.

Hi Jeroen,
Nog geen Kiekendief dus. Maar wat een schitterend alternatief. Alles klopt in deze foto. Een beauty!
Volgens mij kun je de data via 'manage' en 'edit' altijd wijzigen.
Nogmaals dank voor de leuke dag.

Hi Jeroen.
May be this is one of the best POV and impressive scene at whole. Terrific eye-contact and reflection of the bird' state. Excellent timing, great exposure. Best regards and TFS.

Hi Jeroen,

A very good view, he is certainly looking at you! excellent focus, clarity and colour. Good light management against a bright sky.
TFS regards Bill
