Here is my first attempt at photographing bald eagles. Some turned out great, others, not so great. Here are a few. I'll put more up as I get the time. All these were shot with a rented D3s and my Sigma 150-500. C and C always welcome. Thanks for looking

Matt these are very nice...with #4 being my favorite. I would do a bit more work on this one if it were mine to punch it up a little. Its such a cool shot...and its great as is, but I think you could milk a bit more pop out of it. Perhaps darkening the bg just a tad to bring out the Eagle...as its human nature to focus on a lighter or brighter spot in an image. Thanks for sharing these...I look forward to seeing more.

Matt,

Really love these photos. Wow almost 40 birds in that one shot. I agree that punching up the contrast might help some but overall nice job.
