Great bird shots as usual.
Interesting that the first shot is 1/500 same as the 55-300.

How long did you have to wait?

You give me hope for the shorter zooms Ken. These are beautiful. The first one especially.

You must be very proud of these spectacular shots. An eagle in action - now that's something to see.

Really cool action shots!

The problem with the last one isn't because the kit 55-300 is soft, though. It's not well-focused.

Wow! The first one you got the water, but the second third and fourth the bird is finely focussed. Another stunning series.
