Dedicated to my dear friend Tom Baumker, to which I have always admired, and am Zealous of his images of the eagles! Please view his wonderful gallery!
This image was taken at the Tulsa, Oklahoma Zoo, Tom shoots them in the wild!
I see them here in Arkansas a lot, but I do not have right equipment to capture them in the wild. Maybe one day :) I keep hoping!

    One of the best portraits I’ve seen, actually! We see them in all kinds of positions and poses, but this one’s just like the one on the Great Seal of the U S of A. Excellent work!
    (Sorry about your camera. Maybe somebody rich will give you one of theirs??)

  • Many thanks, Dayonda! I was very happy with this position, and pose, and YES, any one RICH out there that has a spare camera, please do send it my way, a DSLR would be just fine!! :) xoxo hugs to you, Carolyn
