Fishing for Eagle shots. Never got out of the single digits today, but it was again amazing to watch these Bald Eagles.

The one that got away.

Just incredible Tim, used to brave the single digit's in Northern Washington while working in the San Juan Islands. Plenty of big birds up there too!

Thanks for putting these up man :thumbsup:

Pretty freaking cool Tim! Were you shooting from the shore, a pier or a boat?
In that last shot the eagle looked to be eyeing you... better keep your head low :p

Beautiful shots Tim!

What lens were you using?

I think I might just have to go to the local lake that has a nesting pair and see if I can't get some shots like these...

I think you caught the trout saying its last words..."oh s##t" :D

Good stuff,
Warren

I was using the 300 f/2.8, and the 1.4x on the 40D.

Great stuff Tim. I love the apparent strain as the Eagle pulls the fish from the water in number 4. What focusing mode are you using?

AI Servo. Center point.

Thanks Tim. My 30D doesn't work well in AI Servo. Sounds like time for a new camera.

That's odd, AI Servo has worked fine for me on every Canon I've owned. ElanIIE, EOS3, 10D, 20D, 30D, 40D, and MkIIN. It's designed for action.
