We’ve nicknamed this beauty “Phyllis” after Phyllis Diller.  We sat on the beach and watched her while she very happily and meticulously took a bath.  At one point she looked directly at us and we caught this image. She wasn’t at all happy about having her bath interrupted.  You can write your own caption but I think she’s thinking something along the lines of “Seriously, you’re going to take my picture now…..just look at my hair!”  She was determined not to move a muscle or feather until after we left. So we packed up and allowed her to dismiss us. We love her and have a large print in our home just because she makes us smile every time we look at her. She’s the most perfect, unregal eagle ever and she owns my heart!

    I liked this photo so much I actually bought a print!
    It has to be a good picture before a photographer will purchase someone else’s work.
    It will find a home at our cabin in northern Mn.next to a moose and a slew of GCs

    I know she’s found a good home with you and I’m so very pleased that she “called” to you like she does to me. I hope you get many years of enjoyment out of her..

    I met you and Phyllis today in St. Petersburg, FL. . The display of Phyllis was purchased just after I got to see her!

    How do I get a print for myself? If you read this while you are still in St. Pete and if you have more prints w/ you in St Pete, email me and I will drive over on Sunday. Thanks.

    Do you do other shows?

      Hi Karen,

      I do have another “Phyllis” and I would be happy to bring her to the show today (Sunday) for you. We also have a local studio here in St. Petersburg that you could visit or our next show will be Valentine’s weekend in downtown Sarasota. I’m so glad you liked her. She is my baby!

    My parents bought the large framed picture of Phyllis when you guys were up in Ocala, FL. Do you only have one size of this photo, and can it be purchased without a frame? Thanks.


    • Michelle Cobble

      Hi Brett,

      Yes, Phyllis can be purchased unframed. She does only come in one size, 16 x 32, and her price is $195. We can either print and mount her on gatorboard for you or just print her with a little extra border for you. We’re so glad you like her! I’m currently in Alaska shooting but Jeff is in Florida so he can get the print out to you. Just let us know how you would like to proceed.

    My husband and I visited your booth at the Los Oles FL Art Festival and we told you about our bronze eagle on a huge boulder in our back yard.
    After a nice chat you gifted us with a 16 by 11 in print of an eagle.

    I saw the “Phyllis” eagle and fell in love with it. I would like to purchase one. Please let me know how I can get one.

    Sincerely, Margaret Caso
