size does matter

took this yesterday at Bang Pu in Thailand, not very good briding yesterday as everything was so far away, but i got this picture which made me chuckle, it's been cropped quite a lot and i can imagine the bird on the left thinking "WTF!"

V1 and 300mm/f4

Great shots must have been quite the sight to see all those eagles in one tree like that.

Re: size does matter

Must have been interesting watching him swallow that big fish.  Nice timing Wu Jiaqiu

Only 20' away 50% crop pretty harsh light and I was in the wrong spot.

Juvenile bald eagle hunting
2

I was photographing a family of ducks at Deer Lake when all of a sudden a giant bird of prey swooped down and tried to snatch one of the ducklings.

It was a juvenile bald eagle.

First attempt failed.  It flew off and circled again two more times.

By now it had lost it element of surprise.

The mother and its ducklings dove as the eagle was within striking distance.

After three failed attempts the juvenile bald eagle gave up.

Re: V1 with 300/4 AFS

Series of really great shots, especially the last (nice angle), with the parent carrying away the kids' bird droppings :-)!
