The Bald Eagle

This bird is a captive creature and, as many will know, is a star performer in the displays at the Hawk Conservancy Trust at Weyhill.
This bird has been seen many times but I think its still worthy of the occasional repeat perfomance. It has such a powerful and commanding presence . If you ever get the chance do go and see him.

Many thanks for all the great c/c's on the Peacock. Particular thanks to Valery Ast for the User Award. I'm flattered.

Ron

It's a fine bird with a menacing beak and so well captured in the side portarit shot, Ron.
Excellent detail and the b/g nicely blurred so as to avoid any visual distractions.
