timing may be everything, but luck counts as well. I mean this looks like it was taken in some garden, where someone had a smal pond with a few fish, and chance had it that this eagle needed a snack just when you where around, I you did not let the moment slip past you ...
carpe diem
well done

This breath takingly beautiful, how you captured nature in its flight.
The food chain, how the eagle must eat, swoops & without remorse or apologies
for its ultimate kill, for it must simply eat. The spectrum of colours are just fabulous.
Well done on this one. I will pick this as my fav tomorrow.

ahh a belt?! :clap: lol thats interesting! many places dont have them in the wild anymore... :sad: damn humans!

hey kinda off topic, BUT ITS IMPORTAINT TO MEEE!!!! ehemm.. :blushes: what is it like to live in the netherlands? i (think) want to move there when i can.. im looking more a more cultured, open-minded kinda place. perferably less corrupt, not to mention free healthcare, education and such, oh yeah, better working rights, such as longer leave and pay of course. do i have the wrong country? anyway, im sure you already know this but the US doesnt have free education or healthcare, min. wage is $5.25 and you usually dont get any vacation time, and if you do it's a week and your not paid or anything- forget all the conservitisms here, stem cell research banned, "God" in every governmental issuse possible- oh yeah, and their trying to ban homosexual marriage in the constitution. you might wonder why the netherlands of all places, but in what i researched, it seemed like and open-minded, more liberal, accepting place, not to mention dozens of countries surrounding it, and nearly everyone speaks like 5 languages.. anyway, any advice????? :?

uuh ehheh I didn't expect this question.. well healthcare is good but not free and education isn't either.
some jobs are good paid though and not hard to find in some cases. open minded well, I guess.
vacations? Depends on what kind of job you do but usually 3 to 4 weeks is normal.
I think it's best to take a vacation here first to see and find things out yourself.
don't think abouot amsterdam.. that's an expensive city to live.
it's hard for me to say this is paradise it can suck everywere sometimes but I guess you can say it's a good and rich living in Holland.
