Well there's not a lot aircraft spotting to do in winter, so I decided to try my hand bald eagles. There are dozens of bald eagles in the area. I usually see them as I cross the mississippi everyday. The park I shot these pictures from was appropriately named eagle point park. I was really stretching the limit of of my 300mm lens. Most are taken at 300mm and cropped down. It seems that I get a ghosting effect at this range. It appears as a glow around the edges of contrasty figures. Any idea why this happens? Enjoy! ~Brett This was a lucky grab! You can see the ghosting along the tail of the bird, I edited out some if it around the head and body.
