This bird is truly gorgeous, and the overall composition is quite nice, Dave.

That's as nice of an eagle shot as I've seen Shalu. Definitely top drawer.

Classic SCC pose.
I love that deliberate gait of these birds. (probably lost on those that don't know these in their own environs)
Beautifully presented.
