Closeup of bald eagle in flight with full wingspan

In Bald Eagles, Pictures by D

This close-up picture of a bald eagle captures the fierce intensity and graceful nature of our national bird.

The bird soars through the air with its full wingspan extended, allowing it to glide for hundreds of yards without needing to exert energy flapping its wings. The wingspan of a full-grown bald eagle can reach up to 90 inches! That’s longer than most humans are tall!

The closeup nature of this shot really brings out the texture of the bald eagle’s feathers, including the animal’s distinctive white tail feathers.
