Great details.....I can see every single feather. Nice control of exposure.

Good details in the face. Some blown highlights at the back of the head prevent the details from coming through there.

What an evil looking Eagle! Certainly looks like he's up to no good. I would've liked it more if it werent cropped so tight

Poor guy. I'm sure he's well cared for, though.

A majestic sight to behold,
his eagle eye now dimmed.
Home was once skies above the stars & stripes.
Lost now, his feathers planted firmly on the ground.

I know the eagle stands for many things in other countries, but for me this majestic bird speaks of a land of freedom and liberty. Here he is blind in one eye or resting BUT he is no longer free to fly off into the wild blue yonder; given the bars I see. Some nice details in the feathers and head.

oh shame about the eye being a bit lost as this would have been a corker
