During my travels today I came across a bald eagle. Immediatly I pulled my car over and took a few shots. This is my first wildlife photo let alone a bird picture. In addition to that the only lense I own is a 18-70 f/3.5-4.5 that came with the D70 kit, so these are heavily cropped. But whatever does the trick, right?

A good eagle in flight is a great thing. Doesn't matter what lens you're using.

But if this is your first wildlife shot where did you get that avatar?

Your right I have taken a bird shot. I felt like my avatar was focused more on composition since that bird is always there, everyday all day.

I like bald eagles, and have a few shots of them. I'm hoping to add to my collection this year. I like these. I know it can be a chore to get good crisp shots of these beauties. Haven't manged to get any really good onesmyself, but any shot is still fun, and worth trying for. Good work,
