    Artist Statement

    "I fell in love with eagles 2 years ago. Bald Eagles are incredible animals. Since this time I've had many opportunities to be very very close to these majestic wild animals. I have learned a lot about them. They were always around but I could never see them before. Now I can see them, I can hear them and I can feel that they are close to me.

    "This shot was taken when I was walking around Stanley Park in Vancouver and waiting for another amazing story which they are always telling me. It was just regular afternoon before sunset and they surprised me again. Adult and juvenile bald eagle are fighting in front of their Biggest Fan."
