caught this eagle coming in for a landing at the park last week. sky wasn't very cooperative, and the eagle was too far away (~ 100 yards) for a really good shot, so this is cropped way too much to print, but i liked the intensity of the eagle's focus. and those talons... oh my! 40D, 400mm, 1/1000 @ f/9

Did we see this in another thread recently? I was so sure I'd commented! If not ... great timing!!
