This Bald Eagle is one of the handicapped birds from the Raptor Project
. She was hit by a car and now half of one of her wings is missing, leaving her flightless.
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
