This was taken at Back to the Wild, a wildlife rehabilitation center in Ohio. The eagle was hurt when hit by a car and is blind on the other side as a result of the accident. Since the eagle only has one "good side" and the side with the bad eye was facing the sun I had to take this backlit -- so I used fill flash (SB-800). The yellow background is from yellow leaves on a tree lit up by the sun.

Wow the detail on this is gorgeous! Were you actually someplace that you could light this bird artificially? Looks great!

Great detailed shot, like the colour of the background, matches the subject nicely.
