I will echo everyone's opinion. These are excellent shots.

GW, I've had the good fortune of seeing flying eagles several times. But I've never gotten pictures nearly as good as these. They are stunning and majestic birds, and whenever I see one (which is not often) it thrills me. I hope you start feeling better soon. As Mole says, soar with the eagles!

Those are really good captures for such heavy crops GW...

Were these images taken with the Bigma?

Regards,
Marc

Thanks again guys! I appreciate all the complements.
Pen, I'm either too young to have encountered him or too old and the memory is fading. not sure which.

Marc, No. I don't have the bigma any longer, these were taken with the Pentax 55-300mm it takes pretty good pix most of the time but sure wish I had the extra 200mm!


Ira, BIF shots are difficult even under the best conditions. I think your photog skills surpass mine.

mtnman, you will my friend... just be patient, you will.

He was a character in Al Capp's Lil' Abner comic strip.

Well that explains it, mom wouldn't let us kids read the comics. I think she thought they would corrupt our morals or something.
