Osprey trying to catch some fish. You can see the fish moving in the water.

Bateleur Eagle - 7D 300/2.8L


WOW! Fantastic!! One hell of a thin DOF, but still exquisitely executed. Love that detail.

How in the world did you get so close? Even with a 300mm, you still had to be pretty close to that bird in order to capture so much detail....I can't get within 25 feet of a raptor in the wild where I live, and due to the atmospherics out here, anything longer than around 1000mm or so doesn't do all that much good, as the air distorts fine subject detail.

Thanks guys: Afraid to say its a captive Eagle. I have a bird of prey center near me that offers some excellent photo ops both like this and in flight / hunting. I have some more if you want to see them?
