Location: Mississippi River, Iowa
Date: 2011

Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark II

Exposure: 1/2500

Note: Perfect picture for veterans day!! Igor Kovalenko captured this photo of a bald eagle on the Mississippi River in Iowa. The Bald Eagle is such an amazing, rare bird. To get a shot of one of these birds is tough, but to capture the Bald Eagle in it’s moment of attack is outstanding. Awesome picture for Veterans Day!!

Tip: The faster exposure setting of 1/2500 of a second allows for the picture to be “frozen”. When shooting a at a faster exposure speed, the ISO (Film Speed) needs to be increased to lighten the photo.
