happened across a couple of bald eagles in a tree beside the road on my way home from work. of course, my camera was at home, so i hurried home to get it, hoping the eagles would still be there when i returned. i got back to the spot about 20 minutes later and they were still there, and let me take photos for perhaps 10 minutes before they tired of me snapping and flew off... the base of the tree was about 25 yards away, and they were perhaps 50 feet up...

The eagle is yet in early stages of making a comeback here, and sightings are rare. When we do here of one, it is one that someone has shot and killed or wounded. This past summer I saw my first one flying overhead in the swamp and marsh area while catfishing.

Two very nice photos, you are very forunate to have them.

What a majestic bird! Lovely shots, Rocky. It certainly was worth the effort (to go back and shoot), isn't it?

Wonderful shots Squirl, Number 2 is my favorite. Did you use a teleconverter? What's the make of it?

Thanks

no converter for these shots, Emmanuel, though i do have an Olympus TCON-14B (1.4x) which is an excellent converter...
