Nikon D750, Nikon 300mm f/4e PF, 1/3200, f/4, ISO 100
Yesterday I was going through the archives and deleted about a thousand photos and in doing so came across this bald eagle I photographed back in November.  Though I have posted a few shots from then in an earlier post this was not one of them but, along with those, I like this one a lot.  Here's why: 
         It's an action shot
         The sun was fairly low in the sky and lit the bird nicely
         There's a catch-light in the eye
         Full wing extension with curved and separated wing tips
         Fills the frame
Could it be improved on?  Sure.  Though the blue sky is nice a little something in the background would be nice, too.  Also would like to see the bird carrying something whether a meal or nesting material, for instance.  No complaints, though.  Just observation.
