More eagles!
Lens: Pentax 100-300mm Camera: K20D Photo Location: north of Nunn, CO on US 85 ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/500s Aperture: F5.6

There is much to be said for being in the right place at the right time. Both of these were handheld (by the side of a windy highway) and cropped pretty tight. I did try some at higher ISO using my old 2x teleconverter but at such a wide aperture there came out quite soft. Comments and criticism are welcome.

any eagle shot is a good shot, would be nice if you were closer, but you have to take what you are given. I think we are going to have to go where Jimbo's eagles live, now those are closeups. thanks Bob
