Ready for take-off by Mouselemur Ready for take-off by Mouselemur
Photo taken in October, 2009 @ Landgoed Hoenderdaell, The Netherlands

You don't have to be American to love the Bald Eagle. I have loved this particular species of bird of prey since the very first time I visted zoo De Beekse Bergen and saw a majestic female called Lady Maya flying in the show. I must have been about eight years old. Saw my first Barn Owl back then as well.
They're still my favorite birds till this day.
This Bald Eagle, called Juultje (could either be Juliet or Julius) is photographed in a stance where he/she is about to take off.

UPDATED VERSION
I enhanced the coloring a bit to make them pop out more than before, and changed the watermark to my new one. I hope you still like it :)

Species: Bald Eagle (Amerikaanse Zeearend)
Latin name: Haliaeetus leucocephalus
Originates from North America.
Current status: Least Concern
Did you know:
…The Bald Eagle is of course, not actually bald, but it’s name derives from an older meaning, namely “white headed”.
…Both sexes are similar in plumage –though immature birds are brown – but the females are larger than the males.
…In the late 20th century, the Bald Eagle was on the brink of extirpation (extinct in its chosen geographic area, but still existing elsewhere) but has recovered in a matter of 12 years, from Endangered, to Threatened, and since 2007 has been removed from the endangered and threatened list in most states.

Looking down on us all... I always heard the eagle is the King of the Birds. ("MIGH-TY EA-GLE!")

Magnificent photo!

The eagle - any kind of eagle - to me is the King of the Birds. They are so magnificent, really big and regal looking.

Thank you so much!
