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

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!
