Mother Nature has offered such a diversity of flora and fauna making us still amazed of its beauties. As a result of that many people are taking walks and when there is the perfect flower or some unexpected wild animal they are capturing the amazing moment.
Professional photographers are always on the lookout for the perfect picture, and they take frequent hikes in order to capture the right landscape or animal event. Steve Biro, a Canadian photographer had the privilege to capture one, and once it was posted online, thousands of people liked it.
The subject of his picture was a bald eagle that was skimming the surface of a pond at the Canadian Raptor Conservatory.
They named the eagle Bruce since he became instantly popular on the net. He was living in the Ontario’s Canadian Raptor Conservatory when Biro captured his activities. Biro has been a photographer over a decade and visited the conservatory in order to take some good pictures. Many of his colleagues visit the conservatory since it is a home of more than 200 captive-bred birds, and there are also dozens of sick and injured wild animals that once they are well enough they are being returned to the wild.
In that search for the perfect picture Biro ran into Bruce, the Bald Eagle, and first he tried to photograph him while flying over the water. However, Bruce had a mind of his own and did not like Biro being so near to the edge of the pond considering it his territory.
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!

The bald eagle flew over Biro’s head making him to go away, but Biro was determined to take a picture. The eagle was flying inches over his head, and Biro could sense the breeze from his wings as he flew over him. There were spectators of this event and were amazed by the spectacular scene. Nonetheless, Biro succeeded in taking the perfect picture.
This photograph was probably among the best one him taking it. The bird in the photo is squared up perfectly, while its both wings are touching the water. The symmetry of the photo was perfect and the mean look that the eagle sent to him was so overwhelming like saying what are you doing on my territory.
Biro was so satisfied with the photo that almost immediately he shared it on his Instagram account with a caption saying: “So lucky to capture a symmetrical reflection of this beautiful Bald Eagle coming straight at me!”
I decided to repost as my cover with a watermark as this eagle is getting shared more than I imagined!

The photograph was such boom after it had been posted on his Instagram and to Facebook photography group that it even made it to the front page of Reddit.
Biro was aware that he made the perfect photo, but did not expect to become such a great hit on social media. People still check it and enjoy it every time they see it. He is grateful that he had such opportunity to capture this moment, especially after spending thousands of hours in the field shooting.
