Bald Eagle

bald-eagle-portrait.jpg


An impressive bird, not only when it sits. The eagle is often used as a symbol of freedom. The bald eagle is the symbol of the United States since 1782. Its life expectancy is up to 20 years. The body can reach a length of almost a meter, and his wingspan can reach up to 2.50 meters.

The photo is almost straight out of a Nikon D7000 [Amazon Link] and a Nikkor 70-300mm [Amazon Link].

I just sharpened and increased the saturation with Apple Aperture [Mac App Store Link].
