I was working on my cloning skills. There were a couple of annoying twigs across the body. So, I removed them. Unless you greatly enlarge the picture I don't think you would be able to tell. Maybe I'm wrong.

I think I remember this one from before, it looks very nice with your pp work, although the original was very nice as well.

Love da birdies, and what at lens that panasonic converter turned out to be:!:

Thanks Brett,
I took about 30 pictures of this Eagle and this is VERY similar to another one that I posted but it is ever so slightly different. Just a slight tilt of the head. It is so hard to tell even I get confused. I need to find a cheap or free site to post my pictures so I don't keep double posting. Plus it's always nice to see a whole series at one time.

All the best,
smac

Could you let me know what your camera settings were. I am hoping to get some "identifialble" shots of eagles for my wife. So far it has been a problem getting close enough.

Yes, getting close is quite the problem. I have been very lucky so far.

Almost all of my settings when I am out shooting birds are always the same.

P-mode and auto focus. I feel that those settings let me concentrate on getting the bird in frame with the least distractions. I would go nuts with the shutter lag ( and it's pretty good on the FZ20) if I had to manually set the camera and focus and find the flippin bird. I also turn off auto preview. That helps minimize the between shots time.
So, far it's worked out pretty darn well. I bought a monopod to help stabilize the camera for zoom shoots. I don't use the monopod on the ground, I keep it pretty much collapsed and jam it into my belt and lean the camera out against the neck strap. It really does the trick. Good luck and happy shooting,
