Bald Eagle Closeup in flight

This close-up photograph of a bald eagle reveals the incredible musculature in the wings of these majestic creatures.

Bald eagles move with incredible grace while coasting air currents. The sleek, aerodynamic bird can reach speeds of 70 to 100 miles per hour when diving.

Bald eagle close-ups are difficult to capture, especially in-flight. This is one of the best images we captured during our recent photography trip to Haines, Alaska. The area was saturated with bald eagles, which allowed for a wonderful variety of eagle photos!
