Default Eagle pose you won't see anywhere else. I promise.

I was looking through some of my old Eagle photos and came across this shot from 2006. It still makes me laugh so I thought I would post it again for any comments. Someday, I have to make this into a poster of some kind. There are so many possibilities it makes my head spin.

The only post processing I did was to crop, adjust color, and clone out some twigs and a branch in the background. I swear!

I hope you find it as amusing as I do.

Go ahead, post your caption.

Cheers,
Steve

Just to clarify, the eagle was actually scratching his head just below the eye.

Outstanding catch, Steve! Looks like he is flipping us the "bird" (pun intended!)
