Wow Larry. Are you going to tell us how you climbed that tree and took the photograph with no hands?

@Mike thank you very much. It was a great birding day

@Phil that’s an interesting theory. Actually, I was in a photo blind at Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge when I was fortunate enough to have this beautiful eagle land on the snag right in front of me. He/she spent some time preening and posing for me before I caught the in-flight shot! It was an exciting day for me!

Amazing detail of the eagle’s feathers! And love the pose – slightly turned! Finally, in flight, the eagle presents the power of wings! Beautiful photos!

@Judy it was a great day and you are very welcome. I love sharing bird stories and photos!

@Evelyn thank you very much

@Wren it is really nice to be able to watch a bird like this from a photo blind when you can see all the intricate details of their actions. I was able to watch this bird preen for a long time and survey the area before taking off. It was magnificent

@Nicole thanks!

@Maria I believe the blind is about 15 meters from the snag
