More to come…



  1. As the eagle took off, I loved seeing the back of its claws! Such a unique and beautiful angle, Deborah. This was something both magnificent in the wings and useful in its claws. 🙂

    • 🙂 I’m so glad you liked the different perspective of her feet Robin!

      • It really is a unique and special photograph of the back of its feet! You come up with one of a kind photographs, Deborah. ❤ It is always a pleasure seeing your photo shoots.

  2. Thank you so much Amy!!

  3. Wonderful captures! He looks like he’s got attitude in the first and the bottoms up image makes me smile!

  4. Beautiful captures, Deborah! Every time I photograph an Eagle, I get pumped up with excitement as if it’s my first sighting, they are so majestic. 🙂

    • Thank you so much Donna! I have that same feeling! Though I don’t see them as often as I hope to, but things are looking up b/c both Bald and Golden Eagles are making a comeback in California.

  5. 2 years ago we took a float trip on my birthday. We got lost and was gone for 9 hours! Seeing a bald eagle on a dead tree right above us – just like the one you photographed-made it all worth it! We didn’t bring any electronics with us (which made being lost a bit scary) and I was so sad not to have gotten a picture of the eagle… but yours will do 🙂 thank you!!

    • I’m so glad you made your way of there, and liked my images!

      Sometimes the memory of something is enough. I have lots of memories of birds an no image to show for it. 🙂

  6. Amazing! I love the second one of take off! Wonderful!

    As always, Deborah.. beautiful captures!! 🙏 R.

  7. Love it.

  8. ❤❤❤

  9. Wow on that eagle and wow on your pictures 🙂

  10. These are fantastic photos. I love the one of him leaving the branch – perfect timing!

    • Thank you so much Dan! Those feet! I’d never really seen then from that angle before, and I was struck by their size, and how dangerous they look.

  11. The size of its feet in the second photo really pop out. Like BuntyMcC said, it’s a perspective not usually seen.

    • Thank you so much Joanne! Those feet were a lot bigger than I thought they’d be, and her talons are fierce looking! Now I see how they can catch such big fish.

      I’m glad you found that image interesting too. 🙂

  12. Magnificent 🙂

  13. Love the photo from the rear! Not often seen, or, if seen, not bothered with.

    • Thank you so much Bunty! I was surprised by how really big her feet are, and those talons! They’re so long!

      I’m glad you liked that image too.

  14. Just wow! 🙂
