WOW, this is incredible, Kelly!!
Each shot is crystal clear and tack sharp and any one of them would be a winner if I was judging.
Amazing detail down to the clarity in each eye.
An absolutely superb panel of work.
Happy New Year, Kelly!

Very nice work. I love the pan. Well done.
I looked at your gallery and it all feels familiar! I live in Colorado so I photograph the same animals. I guess you might too. I've been lucky enough to shoot a Bald Eagle fishing but wasn't near this close or this crisp. Beauty!

Thanks everyone! I really do appreciate it! :O) -K

Kate, I used an 80-400mm lens.

Donna, I was shooting handheld since this was such fast action and they would change direction so quickly. They can dive and fly really fast. I couldn't keep up any other way. :)

Thanks again! :) -K

Amazing picture and so much detail! It seems that the vawes are even moving in a mirror image pattern of the eagle in the first part of the picture.

Neat! The only one missing is the one where it catches the fish and there's splashing water around it...

Wire sharp, perfect composition and timing. I love to take captures like this, holding down on the trigger and shooting away in continuous mode for 6 or more frames per second. You must have been ecstatic when you saw what you captured.

I love your panorama, which allows a larger size than the standard 750 at the longest end.

Magnificent! Congratulations on your win!
