Beautiful shot, great composition and lighting. Well done Debra

Debra Plett

Thank you Clifford.

Heather Mellon

Beautiful compo and capture Debra. He looks very relaxed here and your focus is spot on. Reminds me of the eagles that used to winter over in this area and how I miss them. Your nature presentation sounds wonderful, this will be a great treat for the seniors with the added enjoyment of being able to view some of your remarkable photography.

Debra Plett

Thanks very much Heather for the much appreciated feedback. I am not sure why I didn’t think of giving a nature photography presentation before now. I think it could be fun as some of the seniors cannot get outside anymore so why not bring the outdoors in.

Jane LeBlanc

Beauty, Debra! I've had that kind of opportunity, too. Makes you glad to have your camera at the ready. Great focus and light.

Debra Plett

Thanks very much Jane. Yes camera ready for sure.

Yves Langlois

Wow! super capture Debra. Look like Mother Nature was on your side for that one. The zoom option shows beautyful feathers, well detailed. Full light on the head is perfect. That kind of evergreen tree accompany so well the eagle. You will need to start a Wall Of Fames of your own.

Debra Plett

Thanks very much Yves. I have a few pictures printed and hung. I am putting a nature presentation together to give to the seniors in the retirement home my mom lives in. I have titled it “A Walk In Nature”.

Yves Langlois

So nice that you share your beautyful photos with the seniors. Sure they will appreciate.

Debra Plett

Thx Yves I am hoping they do.

There is a Bald Eagle family that stays in Manitoba for our winters. I feel blessed and lucky to have seen a few members of this family on my way to Birds Hill Park. Yesterdays encounter was something else with the blue sky and sun shining down on the eagle as he sat perched on the tree top scanning the area for food.
