Amazing detail & sharpness, perfect use of DOF, wonderful colors, and especially great subjects too! Pose on 1st Eagle shot is great, but my favorite is the second - the tiny clumps of moss and the hint of pine needles really add to the atmosphere. And what amazing eyes on that coyote!

PS - Are these taken with your new 500mm?

Thanxs Mole. The first three eagles where shot with Sigmas 500/4.5 wide open ISO 1600-2000 and the coyote and last eagle was with the DA* 300mm. I am in love with the 500 and cant wait to close the aperture a little..

You really knocked it out of the rink with these photo's. Clarity and bokeh are great. Fantastic.

K-5 ?

High praise for #1...National Geographic material IMHO.

Also like #4...I had to do a double-take to realize the eagle is standing on the carcass of an elk/deer?

Wonderful shots. Same reasons as all of the above. First eagle pic looks like he had something to say about it too.
