A photo of a confrontation with a Bald Eagle during a recent visit to the Canadian Raptor Conservation in Ontario has been making waves online.

Steve Biro took the photo of Bruce the bald eagle at Canadian Raptor Conservancy. He then posted it to some Facebook photography groups.

Since then, the viral image of the bird-of-prey “staring daggers at the photographer” with its piercing eye has gone viral.

This is just one of many photos Biro took that day of the bird.

Reddit eventually published the photograph on the front page. It has been picked up by media all over the world.

Photographers visiting the Canadian Raptor Conservation in Ontario are often able to photograph birds without disturbing them. However, Biro claims that the eagle was unhappy with where he was placed with his camera.

According to Biro, Bruce the Eagle flew over the rock and took the spot.

He admits that he loves to capture images of birds.

Biro believes photography is a challenge to him because it forces him to look at the world “like he’s a child again.”

Biro’s breathtaking photograph of Bruce, the Bald Eagle, gliding over the water with his wings spread wide is elevated to a new level thanks to its perfectly symmetrical composition. The calm water below the eagle reflects his entire body, even though he is staring at the camera. His feather tips touch the surface creating a circle of reflection and body.

Biro captured the power and grace of the Bald Eagle in just one frame. He also demonstrated his technical skills in taking sharp, well-executed photos. Bruce is a favorite photographer at the Conservancy. He is so poised, it almost seems like he is working with Biro to capture his best angle.

North America is home to many Bald Eagles.

The bird nests in over half of the United States, including the United States where it is the national emblem. It’s most common in Canada in British Columbia, the Prairies, and parts of Ontario.
