Bald Eagle
Lens: DAL 50-200 Camera: Kx Photo Location: Lyle, WA ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/125s Aperture: F8

Drove up to Lyle WA on the Klickitat river yesterday. The eagles often gather there to gorge on fish. Sadly, the pouring rain seemed to keep them largely in the trees... And I need a longer lens if I'm going to hit them in flight anyway.

I was getting nervous about getting any closer to him, anway... Those talons look mean.
