Ruffled His Feathers

after a stare-down via my lens at the Oregon Zoo.

It was interesting to watch the transformation from the regal bald eagle shown below… to one in such an agitated state.

For a split-second I actually sensed the intimidation, but as instinct have it the camera dropped several times while I couldn’t help smiling in kindness and awe at the beauty I witnessed, then shortly later much to my surprise another transformation occurred…

What an amazing portrait experience, that lasted moments!
