Striking image Jake. Not complaining about not having a clean bg as the Spanish Moss adds just so much interest, so the habitat absolutely makes the image.

A Jewel.

Only comment might be that I feel a noise filter has been used too strongly as the details look smoothed a tad too much. (I'm quite naughty and do use that, lol, but might do it selectively with the erasure tool, playing with the opacity...).

A challenging shooting angle, but a nicely exposed and detailed view of the eagle. The moss makes a handsome background, Jake.

Great perspective to put this impressive eagle in the power position, Jake! Love the setting with the spanish moss too.
