Golden Eagle after her meal. We were in a small room and this eagle flew down low across it. The wind from her wings was amazing! And yes, she doe have a bit of hat hair.
The lighting was very bad (indoor, artificial) so I relied on high ISO settings to get a decent shutter speed (no more than 1/200 on each photo). Noise was reduced with Define 2.0
