Want out this morning and it was -2F, but I did manage to get this shot of a female eagle sitting in a tree with a 300mm/Pentax 1.4x TC.

Nice shot. The shake reduction combated your shakes?

The females are smaller, have a shorter beak and tail than the males, although young birds both male and female up to about three years of age look pretty much the same.

The male of the pair was there too, but not in a position where I could get a good shot of him.

Thanks, I just had to get out even though it was cold.

You know I didn't see that dust spot, thanks again. This is the second time I have had to clean the sensor on my K10D since I got it since the dust removal system doesn't seem to work as advertised.

Edit: There now it is gone!

I took about 25 shots this morning, but my hand started to get extremely cold so I had to stop shooting. I also forgot to set the SR higher than 300mm since my Pentax TC doesn't send that info to the camera, but most turned out pretty good.
