BALD EAGLE, ALASKA RAINFOREST SANCTUARY, KETCHIKAN, ALASKA, SEPTEMBER 3, 2014
Pentax 55-300 at 230mm
1/800 sec. f8
Naturally this eagle, recovering from some kind of accident, was restrained by jesses and handled by a sanctuary worker when it posed for its portrait. This is one of the best profile photos of the species I've ever been able to get. The soft lighting was perfect and so was the dark background.
