Gorgeous photo of an endangered wild predator. You can see its power, magnificence and raw boldness in its face! There's a wise and unforgiving expression on its face, the cruel beak proud and the eyes unwavering. It knows what it's doing and whre it's headed. The photo captures the bird just taking off and wow what power that shows. The wings are blowing down and will rise again lifting that heavy body up into the air. The updraft stirs the snow as it leaps forward and up. The details captured just magnify its magnificent strength and nobility: glossy, gold-tipped brown and darker gray with lines of white. Strong bold colors on such a white and pristine background. Snow is white and cold, usually symbolizing purity but also death but there's nothing but life here. However, you wouldn't be wrong for also wondering if there's a warning in its presence on white snow: all these magnificent creatures are endangered. Soon photos are all that might be left of them.

:D I love this picture. The wingspread is amazing on this bird. Isn't the Sea Eagle one of the bigger eagles?

It is one of the bib ones, actually very impressive wingspan and size, embodiment of power and hunter.

Lovely, though I can't help but notice the Eagle looks a little annoyed, must not be a fan of paparazzi.

Well, I dont think he looks annoyed. More or less he is determined hunter at the moment, taking off to claim his one day chicken award :).

Amazing! It has got pretty much emotion (the concentration of the eagle while getting up higher). Great shot!
