    Bald Eagle with a fish... I shot this out the car window... just a quick grab shot as it flew by so the quality is not great.

    Very nice series, Joe. Nothing wrong with the bald eagle (It is still a very nice image, IMO!).

    As usual from your part, very nice exposure control on whites!

    Thanks for sharing these.

    Great set, Joe. The Eagle was a great grab with a nice sized fish in his grasp. The yellow legs is an attractive bird and you have managed his detail well.

    That was a hell of a grab out the car window on the bald eagle with the fish! Your snowy egret is terrific too.

    Great set of shots Joe, all presented in your usuaul high standard. Love that Greater Yellowlegs, never seen anything like that before. Also you've captured that Great Egret in flight perfectly.

    Hi Joe,

    Awesome! Very interesting series of shots. The last 5 shots are my vote especially for dove I love the bokeh. Thanks for sharing.

    Btw, I've clone and improved your third image slightly. Hope you shoot this in RAW format and I wish I can PP from the original copy. Just my 2 cents.

    Hello Paul, thank you for viewing and commenting. I wish I had time to get out of the car for the eagle but not even time enough to switch from normal to active VR. Only time to get off three quick shots and then it was flying away from me. The water level was way down in the marsh so the smaller wading birds like the yellowlegs were present.

    Thank you Walad, I can see an improvement in your edit. It is in RAW format, I shoot everything that way, so much more opportunity for editing the data.

    All great shots as usual, Joe. I think the dove is my favorite this time.
