You Being You by Mouselemur You Being You by Mouselemur
When: April 19, 2018
Where: Zoo Veldhoven, The Netherlands

When I saw this this beauty of a bird sitting on the ground, I wasn't sure if I dared get close enough to photograph through the fence. As you can see, there's still a glimmer of fence visible - it was a very uncomfortable position to be in, but I did get as close as I could because the beauty was posing so nicely I couldn't pass up on it.

Latin name: Aquila Chrysaetos

Originates from the Northern Hemisphere.

Current status: Least Concern

Did you know:

…The Golden Eagle is one of the best known Birds of prey in the Northern Hemisphere, and is the most widely distributed species of Eagle.

I was very lucky that he stayed where he was - he was interested and curious, but was good with letting me just take photos of his pretty face :aww:

I think it's good when you know your shortcomings, but our photography isn't perfect - but the animals are :aww: We just do our best to capture them to our best extent, and animals like this bird just make it that much easier by posing so prettily and just being beautiful :heart:
