Superb capture from the underside of the juvenile bald eagle. The contrast between the darkened plumage of the juvenile and the milky blue sky serves to make the bird visually "pop" in the image. I always find this view of birds with a large wing spread appealing with the patterning and those feathers at the end of the wings creating the illusion, for me, of the bird swimming through the air. Even at this distance the catch light in the eye brings a fearsome look to the bald eagle.

a rather serious looking juvenile
