    We are lucky in Washington State to have the largest gathering of Bald Eagles in the Lower 48 in late November/December.. this is one of those lucky shots. D500 with 200-500. Full Frontal Attack.

    you guys are too too nice.. thank you.
     
  11. Very nice Karl. What I like is the even lighting on the eagle and the full spread of the wings. This is very hard to get on eagles. Seems like there is always a spot in the shade. Well done.

    Excellent capture. It certainly deserves a spot on a prominent wall!

    I printed on Aluminum and it Looked AMAZING.. simply simply Amazing 16 x 33 aluminum...
    had it one day and it sold quickly.. now to print a new one for me.. Aluminum is so awesomely great on images.. plus we have a local printer you go to the shop, they take your flashdrive load it, do some edits to perfectly match their printer and wow...

    the detail on the bird on aluminum was so fantastic...

    Outstanding image... well done.
     
  20. Now that is really nice! And it speaks volumes for the 200-500 in a fast moving environment, Excellent capture of the right moment wit the claws etc.
