Symbol of America by Peter Denness

I took this portrait of a Bald Eagle at Whipsnade Wildlife Park, England, last summer. The black and white treatment seemed to bring it to life. The National Symbol and bird of America, the Bald Eagle has come back from a threatened status and its numbers are now stable.
