18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Face of America

This bald eagle was located in Florida and sat in this tree for about an hour. I saw it going back to my hotel room and knew I had to capture this moment. This was the closest I have ever been to a bald eagle and this photograph really can’t give this creature justice it was beautiful.
