Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus Leucocephalus)

By brownbear1991
This photo was taken today at The Hawk Conservancy in Andover (one of my favourite places) whilst watching the Valley of the Eagles show. This is one of a pair of Bald Eagles that is flown in the show, they fly from the bottom of the valley to the top giving a good opportunity for flying photographs of these birds.

The sky although not favourable has a slight hint of blue, showing that all is not lost for Great Britain and its weather! I hope that you enjoy this photo and helpful hints greatfully accepted as flying photos are not my forte.

A great effort Victoria. Shots of birds in flight are just about the most difficult. Always a compromise with speed to be fast enough to allow a reasonable capture of movement but slow enough to give a decent exposure. We will have to talk about this when I come to see you over the w/e.
You get top marks from me for trying.

Great capture, not the easiest of subjects but worth the effort.

Great first effort though the head is spot on
