Thanks to all who voted and commented on my eagle image.
This was taken at the Little Rock Zoo. I love being able to get close-up shots of these magnificent birds they are so expressive.

Maybe this comment is rude because you may not like zoos but a rude and ignorant comment nonetheless!

About as hard as it is for you to poke a camera at trees and mountains and shoehorn them into every challenge as you normally do, I'm guessing.

Everyone has a right to shoot what they please and enter it, no matter how hard it was to take the photo.
I remember when I started taking photos, and I went to the zoo one day to take pics of animals. Not very many of the pics were keepers even though I took over 400 shots in one day. Point is, doesn't matter how hard it was, what matters is what the photo says to the viewer. Congrats on HM in a FS.

yes absolutely divine light and stance and clarity and everything. So very beautiful no matter how you got the shot. And a wonderful score for fourth. In any other challenge this would've ribboned. Did I mention the pp, that too is wonderful. Congrats on the HM

So expressive. I don't know what eagles think about, but if I wore that expression with those eyes, I know what I'd be thinking about. Your title is perfect as is the light.

Such detail in those feathers. He does look very thoughtful ... I wouldn't want to be the fish he's considering.
