PostSubject: Epoch Steller's sea eagle: A walkaround by Kikimalou   Sat Oct 31, 2015 7:49 am

Steller's sea eagle (Haliaeetus pelagicus) is one of the largest raptors, with Harpy eagle and Philippine eagle. It is found in coastal northeastern Asia and mainly preys on fish and water birds.

The mature Steller's sea eagle is dark brown to black over the majority of its body, with strongly contrasting white on the lesser and median upper-wing coverts, underwing coverts, thighs, under-tail coverts and tail. The eyes, the bill, and the feet of adults are all yellow in colouration.

This species is classified as vulnerable by the IUCN and is classified as a National Treasure in Japan and mostly occurring in protected areas in Russia.

The model I want to show you was made by the Epoch company in the 2000’s. It was part of a ”Birds of Prey” set together with an Egyptian vulture, a Northern Goshawk, a Golden eagle, a Crested Serpent Eagle and a Steller's Sea Eagle with fish as secret.

This one is the ”without fish” regular one.  Wink

Pic? Here we go  cheers

Thanks to you I am the proud owner of two wonderful birds of that series! cheers
This eagle is surely one more treasure from the Epoch collection. Without comparing with real animal pictures we are tempted to think that colors are too contrasting or bright but in real it is not very different from the figure. It is also a very interesting species, atrue extant dinosaur!

thank you Ken, Rogério, laura and Karin. I'm glad your enjoyed this topic  Very Happy  

@ Ken yeo: They are 6 birds in this series and two of them are Steller's sea eagle, the other one has the same pose with a fish under the claws.the other species are an Egyptian vulture, a Northern Goshawk, a Golden eagle and a Crested Serpent Eagle.

About my camera, I let die my old Nikon D70S and I bought maybe two years ago a Panasonic Lumix G . I hope I will save enough money to buy the Leica45mm Macro to used it for my walkarounds  drunken .   scratch  Why are you asking?  Very Happy

@Roger: Do you mean the pics are too contrasted or the model? Very Happy

Pics are perfect! I was only tempted to think that the painting of the figure was excessively contrasted but, your comment and some observation of pictures of real Steller sea eagles, helped me to see that it is correct actually. :)

Thank you Yvette and Jean-Luc Very Happy

@Roger: Indeed Very Happy That's why I'm not a big fan of the Eikoh one, the colors are too smooth.

I realised that your picture becoming more sharpen than before. I also came to know when a digital camera used more than 3 years the sensor pixel turned weak.

the D70S problem wasn't the sensor but the memory, it lost a lot of pics What a Face  Nevertheless nowadays sensors are much more powerful Wink

Do you think they are too sharp?
