The Eagle

in photography •  16 days ago  (edited)

As a follow up of my Owl post hereby some shots of a Eagle. Eagles demand respect, just by looking at them don't you think ? It are awesome birds with a beak I don't want to find anywhere near me.... The photo's where taken at a bird of prey workshop I have had, therefore you see the straps around the legs of the birds.

stately sitting and watching what's happening arround him (or her, I don't know). Only the look , it reminds me of a old teacher I used to had :)

In flight they are even more impressive

Original format
The reason why it floats above the ground so narrow is because it's preparing to land on the arm of the owner. If you didn't knew that it's just like if he is going to attack don't you think :)

At some point the owner threw a little chick up in the air for the eagle to catch. Although the picture have could been a bit more sharp I did catch the 'attack'. Look at the eagle watching his prey while he prepares to catch it.

Original format
Look at the focus of the eagle while turning so he can grab the chick whith his claws.

Original format
When he catched it he is leveling again to fly to a place to eat his prey.

Eagles can dive and accelerate that way to massive speeds to surprise their prey's on the ground. With their birds-eye they can aknowledge a little mouse or chick on the ground from a very high distance.

Well that were my photo's of the Eagle, I hope you liked them as much as I like taking them.. It's a great experience to attend such a workshop. Besides the great animals for me to see, you won't get a lot of changes to photograph these animals in the wild (at least not in Holland).

Have a great day,

Those are some pretty great shots! I have had some close encounters with some birds of prey myself. One was driving home from work it was attacking something in the ditch along side the road. The other one picked up a carcass from the road and almost ran into my car. It was pretty crazy!

wow, don't think you want to catch something like that on your car. I think they ar massive animals but I trust them as far as I can see them :)
