Taken on Douglas Island, near Juneau, Alaska

Beautiful shot. Are they common there? This one looks like it is building a nest.

Hapy WW!

Dude! In Juneau for a quarter of a day and already you got the bird. Good job!

Lovely!! I have such trouble with bird shots.

I love the color of the light, sort of yellowy, and the contrast with the darker shadowy light underneathe, and the eagle coming in from the side is just perfect. You're either a really great photographer, or just really lucky!! Pick one! (or maybe it's really a combination of both!)

Haha...thanks, but if I was a really great photographer the eagle wouldn't be blurry! :)

Life the universe and everything 33 miles above the arctic circle.

Boy, glad I don't live there. Two years in Kodiak in the 60's was enough for me.

I like it where it's green the year around even if there is a bit of snow at times.

No, no, no - you're SUPPOSED to say that is "photographic technique." You MEANT it that way. It's part of the new camera - yeah, that's it, it, uh, lets you choose which part to make clear and which part to make blurry. Sheer talent!

(It IS a gorgeous shot, regardless)
