It's obvious from all your great Eagle photos with a variety of glass that it's not the lens, it's the photographer!

You are NOT helping my LBA - the Sigma 150-500 is on my list and I've been doing a good job of controlling my desire for it. Keep posting wonderful shots like this and I'll give in to it sooner instead of later.

Wonderful photos, all of them! I don't own the 150-500 but I have borrowed one, and I have found it to be a very fine lens.

I confess that I'm not much of a birder, although I very much enjoy having them around. Please forgive my ignorance, but is this a golden eagle, or an immature bald eagle?
