A Real Eagle Eye

Here's a shot I've been trying to get for a while, but bald eagles are pretty hard to get close to. I finally got smart and stopped in at the Audubon Center For Birds Of Prey in Maitland, Florida, and the trip was well worth it. The eagle above is named Frank, and he's a lifelong resident at the center, thanks to any early bout with pneumonia that left him with diminished lung capacity, and thus limiting his flight range to a few blocks. He was happy to pose for this picture (and hundreds more) while perched on the arm of his trainer.
