Steve Biro is an amateur photographer from Canada. While on his second visit to the Canadian Raptor Conservancy in Ontario, he managed to capture this stunning photo of a bald eagle flying straight towards him with a perfectly symmetrical reflection in the water below.
Taking The Perfect Shot
As the majestic bald eagle swooped towards him, Steve managed to capture a perfectly symmetrical reflection in the water below the bird.
“I definitely rank it as my top image and did not know when I shot it how it had turned out,” says Steve, who considers himself a serious amateur photographer after being in the business for over 10 years.
“It was only later when I went through my images and cropped in closer on him did I realize how perfect it looked with him squared off perfectly and staring daggers at me.”
An Pretty Annoyed Eagle
Apprently shooting the image of the eagle was fun for steve, but it seems like Bruce, the eagle, didn’t agree.
“I had decided to get down close to the water on a rock at the edge and he was, I think, annoyed with me being so close. He flew towards me, staring at me often, and then a couple times definitely close enough for me to feel a breeze. Others in the group were commenting on how close he came,” Steve says.
“He was staring quite a bit at me and when I moved away from the rock to get some pics of him landing, he swooped straight to it as if to say, ‘This is my territory, pal.'”
The photo below was taken when bruce the eagle had landed. It definitely does look like he was glaring, doesn’t it?
“The response has been completely overwhelming and unexpected, I knew the image was good but it just seems to strike a chord and resonate with so many people. I’m humbled and thankful by all the love and comments and likes given.”
