Default eagle landing

went out with a friend of mine this afternoon, we went to a small waterfront park on Puget Sound. small place, nice, quiet stretch of beach. we were just sitting on a log swapping stories when an eagle flew across the sound toward us, and landed on top of some pilings maybe 25 yards away. it sat there for easily 30 minutes, giving us ample opportunities to take lots of shots! here are some of the 2 dozen or so i got... most of which are either not cropped, or are only cropped 20% or so, still leaving 10-12Mp images that will make excellent prints...

here are some shots of the eagle coming in.... i'll put up some of the "portrait shots" in a second post
