It felt more at the time... it was working me, the joys of WR with a non WR lens.

Captive bred, fully imprinted, hand reared and called Pilgrim, or so I was told.

He is a beautiful bird, that's for sure. I am extremely envious of your A*200/2.8 Nice shot - as usual.

That's nice KD.
You are making good use of that K-1 - the detail is excellent: rain drops on eagle's shoulder, frilly "trousers", et cetera, et cetera, et cetera, (as the king of Siam would say).
