I love the first photo! He must have been very close to you which is evident by the narrow depth of field! His feet and his head are in focus but both wingtips are out of focus. Beautiful! (Or, I guess the wings could be flapping, as wings sometimes do)

The first one is an incredible shot for the amount of eagle in focus. very difficult in my experience to get photos like this - congratulations!

Great shots! I think that getting a capture of an eagle is one of the harder beasts to get! GOOD JOB! Keep it up!
