Haines, Alaska. Early morning. At Mile 19 it’s breakfast time for this bald eagle. I’ve been an editorial and advertising photographer in New York City for nearly two decades, specializing in beauty and fashion.
I started photographing wildlife four years ago. I made friends with several accomplished wildlife photographers and accompanied them in their travels. Along the way, I was told the do’s and don’ts of wildlife image making.
I have always followed my heart with everything in my life. I decided, if I love an image where the head doesn’t show, then I love an image where the head doesn’t show. The do’s and don’ts won’t change how I feel.
This Image reminds me of a beautiful cape. Be it wildlife or fashion, its beauty I’m after.

Characteristics of Bald Eagles
With feather-free legs and also talons to match, the bald eagle is fully equipped to capture its prey from above. They pierce the vital areas of prey with its back toe while the front toes hold the pursued animal—the eagle’s lunch. We focus on their raw and graceful movements in our pictures of eagles.
Rather large in size, the eagle spans out a body length of 28 to 40 inches. On average boasts a wingspan of 5 to 7 feet or so. The female bald eagle is known to be 25 percent larger than the males.
One of the things I enjoy so much is taking bald eagle pictures. These birds are mainly found in North America with a large population of them in Alaska. The bald eagle’s beak, feet, and also irises are bright yellow. The legs of this beautiful bird are feather-free, and the toes are short and so powerful with large talons. All Eagle images in our collection detail their natural movements. The highly developed talon of the hind toe is used to pierce the vital areas of prey while it is held immobile by the front toes. The beak on this bird is large and also hooked, with a yellow cere. You can vividly see their characteristics and details in our pictures of eagles.
