The photographer took a "few hundred" shots as he tried to ignore the bald eagle's gaze. "I could tell he was annoyed with me being so close to the edge of the pond," Biro said.
Photography is a work of art and it takes a lot of work and luck for a photographer to click a perfect shot. Some even call it a once in a lifetime shot. Canadian photographer Steve Biro was visiting the Canadian Raptor Conservancy when he got the opportunity to capture the best shot of his life - a bald eagle and its reflection in water in perfect symmetry. Biro visited the conservancy in Vittoria, Ontario on May 4. One look at the photograph and you'll know why people are calling it picture-perfect.
In the photo, the eagle is staring at Biro with its wings spread wide with its reflection perfectly symmetrical in the water below. Biro shared the photo on his Instagram account with a caption that read: So lucky to capture a symmetrical reflection of this beautiful Bald Eagle coming straight at me! It did not take much time for the photo to go viral, because it's a magnificent version of the bald eagle, one many hadn't seen before.
Biro, who has been an amateur photographer for about a decade, wanted to take the perfect shot for quite some time, now. He stayed still on the ground with a camera in his hand, knowing that it would be tough to capture the perfect shot. But he had to, as he was determined to click the perfect shot, one that would mark his name in the world of photography.
"It became quite overwhelming, to be honest, but it's a lot of fun too," Biro said told the CTV. "It's quite a wild ride." The photographer took a "few hundred" shots as he tried to ignore the bald eagle's gaze. "I could tell he was annoyed with me being so close to the edge of the pond," Biro said. "That seemed to be his territory." Biro knew that the predatory bird would be too close to him, and just in case the bird did land on his head, he asked the other photographers to click pictures, too.
One user took to Twitter to say: This photographer was lucky enough to capture a remarkably symmetrical reflection of this beautiful Bald Eagle at the Canadian Raptor Conservancy. Another said: Windsor photographer Steve Biro's shot of bald eagle and its reflection goes viral! Incredible capture Steve!! A third added: Amazing eagle photo by Steve Biro! The timing couldn't have been more perfect.
