White-Tailed Eagle

White-Tailed Eagle

The White-Tailed Eagle, the largest Eagle in Israel (and Europe, for that matter) is one of the most impressive and powerful birds in the air. With a wingspan that can extend beyond 2.5 meters, few birds can challenge its size or its power. They used to roam free in the Israeli skies, but have been almost wiped out in recent years, and now are being re-introduced into the wild by conservation projects.

This photo shows a female in captivity, spreading her impressive wings, showing her incredible talons. I think this photo really makes her power radiate through.

What do I like about this photo? The beautiful pose of the beautiful raptor, radiating with power.

What would I want to improve? For starters, I really would prefer shooting her out of her cage - the background would complement her so much better. Furthermore, having all the wings in the frame might have been nice.
