  1. Just out enjoying the sun probably a lucky shot.

  2. WOW Gary! Love it! That would look nice hanging on my wall! :wink: :biggrin:
  3. Thanks Dianne

    You need to get ya one!!!! :wink:
  4. Excellent! Great capture.

  5. Which? The photo or an eagle?
  6. Very nice. One of the best of the series.

  7. Thanks Anthony

    Really nice to hear from you.

    Thanks You Alex I'm flattered, but I like it!!!:redface: :rolleyes:
  8. Great pose. A little bright - the higlights are blown on the whites. I shot a lot of eagles this spring and it is tough - I ended up using spot metering on the whites :).



  9. I presume you like this better exactly same camera setting on the same shoot less tha 1 minute apart.

    #2 is definitely exposed better. Did you shift your camera slightly for the 2nd one? That might account for the different exposure if you were shooting in AV mode. Either way this is a great image.
  16. Thanks Andy

    I believe I went from ISO 400 to ISO 200 on the second shot As he was sitting still and I could let my shutter speed drop.

    Great shot Gary... I don't shoot birds very often ....But they are very interesting for sure.
  18. I'm a equal opportunity Photographer, Right now I'm working on a project documenting Eagles raising of the young
  19. That's Funny Thanks for the chuckle Chris:biggrin:
  20. Yup second one is better Gary. Better detail in the breast and head, Great pose. Do they still have young at the nest?
