He seems to be looking straight at you! You did a great job here.

It appears to be having a problem flying too! That's a real spread eagle! Nice shot under the circumstances, Tom!

Still, a pretty good shot of this soaring eagle. Well done.

Love the translucent capture of this eagle's tail feathers! Marvelous capture in the not-so-desireable weather. V

It's very appealing, and at least the whites don't get blown out when it's rather dull!

It might have been a crummy day but you made the most of it with this shot. The translucent tail feathers are remarkable. Nice crop too. Voted

magnificent pose and expression and I love the translucent tail feathers; wouldn't have occurred to me there was much wrong with light from the result

...but when you know the birds are out there you've just got to try!
Looks like he was watching you too. - Racine

You still nailed the exposure Tom. Under the conditions you did a great job. :-)

Still worth it! Great in flight regardless of the crummy weather! We get our first day of Sunshine and it's like -20 with wind and all!
