A Spread Eagle with wide open wings just before catching a fish. You can see the whole wingspan of this spread eagle, parts even reflecting on the water surface.
It is an amazing sight watching a bald eagle from a close distance with wide open spread wings, it is actually almost scary. The biggest challenge photographing eagles is to catch the right moment. I photograph bald eagles for a while now and I find more and more that the experience is one of the keys to capture good, powerful eagle photos like this one.
I photographed this photo with the digital SLR camera model Canon EOS 20D, aperture of f/6.3, exposure time of 1/400 sec. on ISO 100, as always I used a original Canon Lens, the focus lenght for this picture was 160mm.
