A bald eagle in a dive to try to grab a meal. This was taken in the winter so there was much better light under the wings than there would be in the summer.

I love the outdoors and the beauty in nature. Hopefully my images capture that beauty.

    The eagles were being fed fish, which requires a license in the US. I positioned myself so that the sun was to my back relative to the most common flight path of the eagles. Once positioned, I limited my shooting to down sun as much as possible and took LOTS of pictures, perhaps 400-500 in an hour. This was with a 300 mm lens and a Canon 1DMII, which has a crop factor of 1.3, so an effective focal lenght of 390 mm.

    Thanks again for all of the wonderful comments. I’ve been away from any internet connections for a week, hence the slow reply.
