I came back a few days later with my granddaughter, Anna (13 years old and had never seen an Eagle) to see if the chick had started to fly and I hoped to show her what a fully grown Bald Eagle looks like. Well, the chick is getting closer to flying and Anna really liked seeing the mature Bald Eagle.
Thank you for stopping by.
I have included Anna’s first photograph with any SLR or pro base camera.

Cannon R5, Cannon 100-500mm & 1.4Ext, f10, 700mm, 1/1600, ISO 4000, Shot at 6:45 PM. The shot is cropped bye 50% into a 16 by 9 and I used local control points to bring up the Eagle’s whites and lower the highlights in the pine tree. (DXO Photo Lab 5)
Love how you captured the parent taking off from the tree with the young one looking on in the background, Peter. Seems like a training session going on! Nice first picture that your granddaughter, Anna, took! You’re teaching her well!
I think the first image would work better if the adult were the focus rather than the juvenile, Peter. With the angle of take-off it would be an awesome image. Your granddaughter has a lot of potential.
Hi Vanessa & Dennis
Thank of the comments, I took another look at the adult in Topaz Sharpen AI and applied a mask to it.
Here is the results.
Anna said thank you and is ready to photograph more birds.
