Hi Grinner, looks like you had some poor lighting, but your photos are spectacular. Not many people get to see an eagle catch a fish, much less photograph it as well as you did here.

I think the 100-400 has already been fully justified even if you don't get another good shot!!! I love the first.

Thank you Mark, I am excited about the new lens. I have been shooting wildlife shots with a 70-200 and teleconverters. This lens is much sharper than that setup.

Indeed very sharp captures - and a well-told story as well.
