A spectacular in-flight eagle capture, Don! Love the expression on his face and the incredible detail and clarity - so crisp and clean. Your gallery is magnificent and very inspiring. What lens did you use for this one (and/or most of your bird images)? Anyway, HUGE CONGRATULATIONS on this marvelous Gold Winner! #9872813

Don Holland 12/16/2011 10:56:10 PM

Thanks very much, Merna and Rona. Rona, I used the Canon 300 f/2.8 for this image. For longer distance, I use the Canon 600 f/4. You are very kind; thanks for the encouragement.
