As the majestic bald eagle swooped towards him, Steve caught a perfectly symmetrical reflection in the water below the bird.
” I certainly rank it as my top picture and did not know when I shot it just how it had ended up,” says Steve, who considers himself a serious amateur photographer after being in the business for over ten years.
” It was only later, when I went through my pictures and cropped in closer on him did I realize how perfect it looked with him squared off perfectly and looking daggers at me.”
Apparently, shooting the image of the eagle was fun for steve, however it seems like Bruce, the eagle, didn’t agree.
” I had decided to get down near to the water on a rock at the edge, and he was, I believe, annoyed with me being so close.
He flew towards me, staring at me usually and then a couple of times, definitely close enough for me to really feel a breeze. Others in the team were commenting on how close he came,” Steve says.
” He was staring quite a bit at me, and when I relocated away from the rock to obtain some pics of him landing, he swooped straight to it as if to say, ‘This is my territory, pal.'”.
The picture below was taken when bruce the eagle had actually landed. It definitely does appear like he was glaring, does not it?
Biro caught this image of the eagle just as he landed. Steve Biro.
” The response has actually been completely overwhelming and unexpected, I recognized the picture was great but it just appears to strike a chord and resonate with a lot of people. I’m humbled and thankful by all the love and remarks and likes given.”.
