An amazing capture

A fellow photographer friend captured an image of an American Bald Eagle pooping -- the poop is coming from him in what looks like a ticker-tape stream -- I'm not kidding -- and the settings were high speed and crisp and well-exposed ... like the shot of a lifetime.

I jokingly (half) said "that could make you some money" ... and now he wants to know how.

Anyone know? Because we get source pix all the time and sometimes we pay for them -- who is likely to want such an image? Corbis?

That is sooo weird. Just yesterday I was watching an eagle soar over my head riding the thermals and thought "gee I hope it doesn't poop".

About 5 secs after I thought that, it did, lol. It sort of got caught in the wind as it fell however. It was a like watching a mini crop duster

Then I come to FN and find a pooping eagle thread after thinking I'll probably never see (nor hear) of eagles pooping again. I want to see the pic too

Sorry, not my picture. This was not one of those "I have a friend" posts, LOL. It really is someone else who took the picture. He said "I realize now why the eagle looked like he was tensing up just as I pushed the shutter release ..."

I realise it isn't yours Icy. I hunted high and low but could not find a decent still photo of an eagle pooping.
I think he is sitting on a small fortune. I would think he needs to keep the copyright, then sell posters of the photo.

Any chance of him letting you borrow a copy of the photo? you could watermark it and make it low res. Also put his name on it.

You never know somebody might see it and want to buy a copy.
Lots of people visit FN from the media.
