Photo of the Day

white-tailed eagles in Poland

White-Tailed Eagles, Poland

I took this image during my last trip to Poland, where I was amazed by these birds. It seems like every one of them wanted to dominate the group. Displays of such mild aggression were very common. (This photo and caption were submitted to My Shot.) What Makes This a Photo of the Day? The first thing that grabbed me about this photograph was the obvious—the moment of interaction between the eagles. But after spending more time with this picture, I also came to appreciate the smaller birds on the periphery, like spectators at the main event. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor Get tips on photographing wildlife » Get tips on capturing the moment » See pictures of birds of prey »
