He is beautiful, Ed, and I like everything about this shot. I like how the grasses (looks like cattails) compliment the eagle’s feathers. No nits here.

A lovely scene, Ed, with good detail in the eagle and nice gradation of focus on the cattails.

I am enjoying this in-flight shot. The regularity of the background reeds or cattails is very interesting. I think it works well. I do feel the white plumage has a bit of the blue cast which could easily be removed.

A nice in-flight capture, Ed. I’m thinking a slight proportional crop on bottom and right would provide a less centered composition and also enlarge the bird for more detail. It would also remove some of the broken grasses on the bottom.
