Hi.


You caught it in a great pose and love how the wings are formed. The plain blue background is great as well and having the single branch means it has an uncluttered quality.


My only nit is that it is difficult to make out the head due to it just moving into the shadow as you took the pic. Never used one of those Flash Extenders but I know many bird shooters use them for this type of situation.


I think you probably were not out "Birding" when you came upon this.


Nice timing still though!

Thanks Dayo,


We were out in an area eagles are known to be but didn't really think we would find any since it was so late in the season. This was taken from at least 100 feet away trying to sneak up on him, may have even had a 2X on the lens. The shadows bothered me too but they are from the light coming through his wings. I have a few with him just sitting and one after with the wings spread (they got cut off by the frame so it is not a keeper)

2X TC on 400mm = 800mm ... handheld? You has been eating your greens!


Actually I wasn't refering to the striped shadows but that because of the position of the head, largely due to the left hand wing, it is a bit difficult to make out the head.

AS and 1/2000sec helped with the hand held 800mm, Not sure how well AS works at that length but it does give you a little, I also shoot quite a bit of football (American) using the 80-400 sometimes with a TC if I can brace somehow. 10 1/2 years learning how to shoot off-hand doesn't hurt either.
