Aquila chrysaetos - to the English speaking world known as "Golden Eagle" to the Romanians known as "Acvila de Munte" meaning "Mountain Eagle" it is a formidable predator and symbol of this country on their coat of arms with spreaded wings holding a sceptre and a sword in its claws, as symbol of the justice and freedom, in a similar manner as Bald Eagle for Americans. Eagles have been the universally perceived representation of power and freedom from the darkest ages of human kind from the Barbarians to modern times, everywhere on the Globe from Russia and Germany to USA and Colombia....

Great shot Radu! Warm light, nice details and good exposure. It would have been better to see both eyes, but this is great anyhow. Well done & TFS!

great shot
beautiful portrait !!!
I like it very much

Exquisite! Nice POV; makes for a great composition and the lighting on his feathers makes all those great little geometric shapes pop. Nice DOF- even focus from beak to back of head. I really like this shot. The color is so rich and warm.

I read the passage on the "ayami"- Intruiging- I used to read a bit on Shamanism. Think I'll pick that one up- It is so sensual. Thanks for the note.

Hello Radu,
Good close up and well composed.
