And boy do they, very overcast today and I had to set my lens at manual so in order to track him auto focus just wasn't working, so not the best photo but hey any eagle photo is good. :)

You are right, any eagle photo is a good one :) That second one is a great catch, nice action shot!

Thanks, I had all I could do to follow him, never mind great focus.

Great catch Sandy! I havent had much time to get out and shoot the birds this year... maybe I will get going on some song birds in the yard... I can shoot them pretty much from the porch...

Thanks Ross. Eagles are so tough to follow when there in flight because of the way they circle and soar, always changing altitude and direction, there was noway I could use auto focus, the one I was really trying to get was when he actually hit the water for the catch, but sadly no go, just to fast.:mad:
