Have you ever seen a perfect picture? I think most of us have probably discussed a perfect picture at some time in the past but it is really just a matter of opinion in most cases. Every once in a while, however, you see a picture that is so outstanding, so beautiful and so well done that the only way you could possibly describe it is ‘perfect’. That is the case with this picture and it is not only our opinion, there are thousands of people online who think it is perfect as well.
The picture was taken of a bald eagle named Bruce. A photographer, Steve Biro has been involved with taking pictures of bald eagles for quite some time and in this particular instance, his focus was entirely on Bruce. He reported the following to BBC: “He’s squared up perfectly, both wings are touching the water. That [photograph] was the one that struck me as little more special than the others.”
Now that the picture has been posted online, it is going viral and doesn’t show any signs of stopping.
Biro picked up the hobby of photography about a decade ago. That is when he ran into Bruce the Bald Eagle while taking pictures at Ontario’s Canadian Raptor Conservatory. He says:
“He’s really awesome and fairly well behaved but also has a mind of his own too.”
Biro had every intention of taking a picture of Bruce as he was flying over the water. He realized at that time, however, that Bruce was not all that happy with where he was set up.
“He was actually trying to brush me away from where I was perched,” he told the BBC. “I could feel the breeze from his wings as he flew over me. The other people who were there were gasping as he came over my head. It was really quite exhilarating.”
Of course, he couldn’t resist taking a picture of Bruce as he flew over his head and the result was breathtaking.
“I knew it was a great image when I saw how balanced it was but never in my wildest dreams did I expect anything of this magnitude.”
This picture continues to be shared online and has even made it to the front page of Reddit.
“It warms my heart to know I might bring joy to people who may not even be able to leave the house and that they love to see the world through my eyes.”
