Default Up/Down- Looking up...Looking down

An archive shot. It struck me as meeting the challenge.
I was looking up at the eagle looking down.
A side note, the spotty white feathers on the eagle indicate that it is slightly leucistic (Source- Wikipedia, Leucism /ˈljsɪzəm/[1] is a condition characterized by reduced pigmentation in animals caused by a recessive allele. Unlike albinism, it is caused by a reduction in all types of skin pigment, not just melanin.) I'd say about 20-30% of the feathers were white.

Cheers and here's to looking up,
Think like a person of action,
Act like a person of thought.

Nice shot, love the penetrating stare! Thanks for the info on Leucism, you learn something everyday.
On a clear day you can see as far as the back of your head.
