What a beautifully detailed image this is!! Pure awesome.
Exciting bird fact: thanks to their short tails, these eagles can walk backwards!

This is a stunning shot. Such an impressive raptor!
Wonderful shot , nature in tooth and claw , have seen them in raptor centres , but not in the wild , lucky you .
