Taken at National Eagle Center in Wabasha, MN. We are fortunate here to have many bald eagles living along the river, but it's rare to get a close up. The great staff there are terrific with the birds and are happy to have them out to photograph. Typical processing here, mostly in LR.

One of the better eagle head shots I've seen. And, unfortunately, I've seen a bunch of them...
The stars make is very American. The eye is totally sharp. Great work.

This is a great close-up of the bird. It's a pity about the stars in the background.

Beautiful detail. Would have liked to see the eye cropped to the very center of the frame. Still very nice.
