DFA 150-450.

Piercing look.

She was tricky and waited until we were married. By then, the "balance of power" had changed.

another shot of that same eagle.
DFA 150-450. Very heavy crop.

That day, i was waiting for the fella to turn its head, such that (ideally), it faced me head on.

While not really exactly dead head on, this was close enough.

Amazing capture and this reminds me of the scene where the taxi driver (de Niro) practices his lines 'you looking at me, punk?' in Scorsese's Taxi Driver.

My version James, while we are waiting for the dive, but it smart enough to dive at the back of the pond

There are lots of images on my Flickr feed that aren't 300mm....
K-3 and DA 55-300 PLM. The rest are on my flicker feed, click on any image to get there.

A few taken at 300mm...








The set up, not mine, but I kinda borrowed it.
