I was pleased with these, but the Bald Eagle captures https://www.nikoncafe.com/vforums/showthread.php?t=111063kinda took a bit of the sheen off!

Well, from my own experience shooting Eagles, and trying to shoot these fast little guys, I'm more impressed by these. Beautiful shots. :smile:

Gale, Gary, Frank, Jose, Alex, Harry.

Thanks for the comments.

Frank: I was extremely happy with these, but the Baldy shots are something I've been wanting for sometime. In nov/dec 2005 I found a Baldy nest site close by and rented a Canoe to go see it. I toppled getting in the canoe and dropped my D70 and sigma 70-200 into the water!!!!! Well thank goodness for insurance and I wisely upgraded the replacements to a D2H and sigma 100-300 f4 (since upgraded for a nikon 300 afs) and haven't looked back since. I think I'll print a decent Baldy shot for my insurance agent (though probably not one with a devoured rabbit hanging from its talons!)

cheers
