You would be surprised on how hard it is to get close to an eagle. They stand close to a metre high, almost
a two metre wing span, talons the size of your hands with enough power to rip your arm out of its socket.
Yet these birds are so shy, they would rather fly away to another perch.
Shot with my Canon 70-300 zoom IS. and a polarizer to bring out the blue sky.

nice try, I like the sharpness in the eyes and the background, but surprisingly the feathers are not very sharp. was that a centre focus?

I know what you mean, its sooo difficult to get an eagle in focus. You have the eyes in perfect focus, very well done!
