Unique pose make me think it’s cold out. I like it

This is probably the most common pose we see amongst Bald Eagles in Valdez, Alaska! Fluffed up and trying to keep warm despite the cold wind. Looking at the white head feathers, I’m thinking you could brighten this up a bit without blowing them out.

Jerry - Really nice image!
I’d personally do a lot of clean-up of all the small branches, and a couple of the large ones, leaving only the ones that frame the eagle.
I agree that the head could be brightened a good bit.

Love the ruffled feathers…I’m thinking it must have been a windy day! Nice capture!
