    Is there a higher resolution version of this? I would love to have this as my wallpaper!

    Why am I getting a sense of photoshopping here? The delineation is too crisp on both sets of wing tip feathers and the focus of foreground and background to sharp for anything less than f/64 range. Are there other photos from this same grouping?

    The photo is great, however, I would like to know what drone they used for this! The shadow on the wing looks like the nose of a microlight. Putting a drone near any bird is reckless and dangerous to the animal. Also I would question that this is taken with a Go-Pro as the bird seems to be in focus and the ground out of focus! There also appears to be no fish eye! I know this can be taken out post edit.

      I agree the bird is in focus but how is the ground “out of focus”? There’s a boat in the water, granted, it doesn’t look as sharp as the bird, but that’s because it’s really far away, not because of any shallow depth of field.

      All these lenses are wide angle and it doesn’t make any sense to be able to make a shallow depth of field for this application.

    Reckless and irresponsible photography wins a prize. Great.

      ??? You should better read author’s explanations here in the comments http://diydrones.com/profiles/blogs/first-international-drone-photography-awards-and-the-winner-is

        Good to know. However I doubt very much that those attempting to repeat this questionable feat will be uniformly careful of wildlife. And if the eagle had contacted the propellers while “playing” with the drone and been seriously injured, what then? We have already seen idiot drone pilots in the USA chasing mountain goats and causing the animals injury, so I’m glad this kind of behavior is illegal in US national parks.

        No explanation is good enough to defend the risk of maneuvering a drone near a bird (or any other wild life for that matter). What would the consequences be if there was a collision? This is irresponsible and should be treated as a criminal offence!
