Best of 2009: Wildlife/Animals - Eagle
This Bird of Prey was in fact in capativity . . . not at all an uncommon photo; however, it was shot through a black netting which I was able to essentially make disappear and the photo is pretty sharp.
The photo was taken on September 9, 2009 at the Topeka, KS Zoo with a Canon Xti. The ISO = 100; 1/400 Sec. f5.6 @ 340mm.
