You are getting an advance look at this photograph because it is amazing!

Golden eagle Taiga was paying a visit to Biggar Show on Saturday, and she stared photographer Jim Clare right in the eye when he asked her to pose for a picture!

Taiga, who is 21 years old, has a wingspan of over six feet.

She was accompanied by George Thomson of Rhuallan Raptors who assured us that she was friendly!

“She is an absolute sweetie,” he said, as he held her only inches from his face.

See Wednesday’s Gazette for photos of the farming triumphs and some of the fun from the show.
