Love how you filled the composition with the eagle. We get to see all the wonderful details of the feathers, the beak, and that piercing stare. Also love how the light plays in this photo by bringing out some of the rich tones of the reddish/brown feathers.

Nice close up. A bit oversharpened in the feathers, I think?

A stare that nails its prey with its intensity. A worthy capture to pay tribute to this species. Bumping up.

Something went wrong in his brown feathers....oversharpened? Camera issues? My guess is too much USM
