Golden Eye by Shadow-and-Flame-86 Golden Eye by Shadow-and-Flame-86
Sima the White Tailed Sea Eagle at the Kielder Water Bird of Prey Center, having seen these birds flying around in the wild in Scotland I was amazed to finally see one up close, so beautiful and so huge!

I personally love eyes both of people and other animals, and it seems the closer you get to them, the more beautiful they get. Absolutely exquisite little markings and colour on this lad/lady's eye. Great job on getting the rest of the picture rather dark, makes the eyes stand out :) Eagles are really cool birds, awesome you got to see them up close like this at the center!

yeah eyes are incredible to look at and photograph! I love this eagle, she's amazing. I got to go back and photograph her again in the easter hols just past, exactly the same setting but I think I got the focus on the eye even sharper this time XD will see what everyone thinks when I get round to putting them up.

Oh that'd be really neat! Eyes of any and all animal species are just so fascinating to look at, they make amazing photographic subjects (once their owners manage to sit still and come close enough of course..)

Wonderful shot, I just love those bird-of-prey-portraits against a dark background and you've captured him/her? beautifully!

And yes, they're huge! I once worked with a female, we didn't fly her on display but I still got to hold her a few times. Not only was she quite heavy, while on my fist her spread wings were like an umbrella!

thanks Tienna! Gotta thank the mews set up for the dark backround! I have lots more of this 'style' too if you like it =)

wow you got to hold her?! thats amazing, they are so massive! And the females are the biggest if I remember correctly? what an incredible experience :love:

It really was! And yes, they're bigger than the males. The one I got to hold was about 4,5kg. She's actually on my ID pic, too :)
Aren't there any "Hold that bird"-offers in the parks you visit? I know some parks in Germany do that; you pay them (usually it's not that much) and then you can hold one of their birds (and take photos to show off ;))

I'm not sure if they have them, I think they have training days and stuff where you learn to fly the birds but I don't think you can just hold them, they do let you have birds fly to you in the displays though sometimes which is cool =)

Great photo, they are beautiful. Their huge powerful yellow beaks are always what stands out for me when I spot one through my binoculars, and it does look like a terrifying bit of kit here!
