Excellent. I like the entire series. The in flight are wonderful...I particularly like the one with the feather shadow over the Eagle beak and head.

The detail in some of the photos is striking and the bokeh is great. #'s 1 and 2 are my favourites in this latest series.

I don't have exif.....so I'm guessing the equipment you're using is the K-3 and Sigma 500 ?

Are these eagles in BC ?

A great series, I like the framing and the detail in the images. I like the first 3 best, nice job.

Awesome, as usual! I can't decide whether I'm more jealous of your access to the bald eagles (they aren't around my area), the Sigma 500 and it's awesome quality (I assume that you were using the Sigma), or your excellent skills to capture the birds. Probably all 3!

Love the series. For some reason I really was struck by the third one of the first set - it's the oof snow covered rocks/mountain and how the snow frames the bird. Also how the bird is somewhat camouflaged but stands out so well with the dof differences.

Amazing as always - the detail & sharpness, the framing and composition, as well as the careful captures of all the action...
