The Three Minute Portrait.

2 PM, July 4, 2011.  A special Fourth of July demonstration of a wounded eagle by Anchorage’s Bird Treatment and Learning Center on the Delaney Park Strip.  (Photographed with a 70-200 mm lens on a Canon 7D)  This was a great opportunity to photograph an adult American Bald Eagle in beautiful afternoon light.  The background is a large red and white stripped banner that was flapping in the wind.  In order to place the banner behind the bird, I needed to get very low and shoot up.  Coincidentally, this camera angle added to the drama of the image.  And, as the eagle and the banner were in constant motion, the trick was to capture the eagle in the perfect position relative to the background.  I produced 50 images and this is one of three selected.  Sometimes you just need to stick with it until you get what you need.
