First rate portrait. If I can nitpick, I would close out the lighter green foliage coming out of the top of its head

I agree with John comment at the top and a little blow out on the highlights at the top of it's head, but it's not the easiest of exposures and it's a damn site better than anything I could do, but other than that it's a great shot, the composition is spot on and unbelievably sharp, especially on the eye...

Happy 4th. Thats a gorgeous place your visiting, lots of eagles.

This is a good shot, a little burnt out on the white feathers.

Loaded a mod with an attempt at revovering some of the white, and removed those bright green leaves as mentioned.

Great shot, composition and sharpness and agree with the comments above - think I would prefer to see the background more blurred which may help with the foliage coming "out of the head".
