This is shot during a birdpresentation in a zoo. I was +-20-30m away from the eagle

This is a wonderful looking image. Was it a wild, free Eagle, or one trapped in a zoo or rehab center?

In a zoo, during a presentation of the birds...

Thanks for the info! I always like to know the circumstances under which an animal or bird was photographed ..... it adds to my understanding of the image.

I've never seen an eagle up close like this before. It's a fantastic image.

Rad shot! Did you get two quick ones in a row, and composite with a focal point on the beak, and then a second with focus on the eyes. It looks like crazy small depth of field, slight blur at the base of the beak, but tack sharp on the eyes, tip of beak and tongue.
Or did you blur other elements of the shot other than eyes and beak?
Nice work!

Wow, this is insane. How did you even take this image? 10,000mm lens?! lol

The photographer said earlier that it's a captive Eagle, like in a zoo or a fenced-in preserve or something like that. Sometimes, what we assume is wildlife is actually captivelife.
