Photographer captures stunning image of bald eagle with symmetrical reflection

A Canadian photographer

 who captured a perfect image of a bald eagle gliding above the water feels “overwhelmed” with all the attention it was getting worldwide.

Steve Biro snapped a photo of the bald eagle named Bruce during his recent visit at the Canadian Raptor Conservancy. As it swooped towards him over a pond, Steve snapped away trying to get the perfect shot – and he did.


In the phenomenal photo, the large bird was staring straight ahead, with the ends of both his wings touching the water.

His whole body was reflected in the calm waters of the pond below, and the end result is a stunning photograph that will surely be hard to replicate.

“He’s squared up perfectly, both wings are touching the water,” Steve told the BBC. “That [photograph] was the one that struck me as a little more special than the others. But I still didn’t even know how it would resonate with people.”

The photographer then posted it on some Facebook photography groups.

The epic photograph made its way to the front page of Reddit and was eventually picked up by media in different parts of the globe.

As perfect as the shot may be, Steve says that Bruce didn’t seem too happy with him when he set up to take a shot – but the experience was nonetheless exciting.


“He was not very impressed with where I sat down and several times flew right over my head close enough for me to feel the breeze from his wings, it was exhilarating,” he said.

Steve also shared a slow-motion video of the bald eagle swooping towards him. Check it out below.

He wrote: “Hi everyone, here’s a slow motion vid of the Eagle coming across the water at the Canadian Raptor Conservancy yesterday. The Eagle was literally flying inches over my head where I was sitting, it was an amazing experience!”
