    The two shots you directly linked to are incredible. The closeup on the bald eagle is printworthy, no question.

    I agree, amazing photo's. What lens did you use on the first photo?
    How did you get the black background on the second?

    Thanks everyone :wink: . It was taken with a Sigma 50-500. The black background is caused by the extreme contrast between the bird in the sunlight and the wood area in the shade. Thanks for the name check Andy, George and Mike were in the book all along!

    Tim fantastic shooting!!!!! :thumbup:

    Can you post pictures rather than links as there are probably more lazy people than me around who can't be bothered to click a link.

    And by the way the first one ain't a RED KITE. It could be a Bateleur Eagle.

    Are you coming with us on tuesday? weather permitting.
