Bald Eagle

Bald Eagle

Atchafalaya Basin, La

(Haliaeetus leucocephalus)
Lake Verret

This is my first of a bald eagle. Beautiful bird, but hard to get close to in a boat.
The image is soft because of the distance and slow shutter speed used in a boat.
Hopefully, I can get better light the next time I'm out and a little closer to produce a better image.

Canon EOS 20D ,Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS USM
1/100s f/5.6 at 700.0mm iso400 full exif

I always get excited when I see a Bald Eagle I am sure getting this shot was quite a thrill even though it might not have been as perfect as you had wanted. Great work
