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.
I’m in awe. How do you capture an image like this ? Amazing .. Wee Cough
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.
Another amazing capture Tim.
Wow!!! Amazing shot! Great timing.
Amazing capture. Looks super sharp too.
Wow! very awesome indeed!
Great job on this one. Excellent setting to get such a nice capture!
Thanks again for all of the wonderful comments. I’ve been away from any internet connections for a week, hence the slow reply.
