Very impressive. Nice clarity and detail. Excellent, informative storyline, also. I'm not sure it's the most powerful raptor though--difficult to measure such a thing, depending on the specific task.

Excellent sequence although I would not sell the Bald Eagle too short. I have a sequence of a pair of them teaming up to drive a Cormorant under water until they had exhausted it at which time one of them ended up on the surface keeping its wings out of the water. It then lifted off and came around and snatched the obviously dead Cormorant from the water, (the splash was red), and carried it a fair distance, dropped it and the other picked it up. They took turns trying to get it to shore but a Cormorant weighs about 4 pounds and it is a bird that can become waterlogged so I imagine it was just a bit too heavy for sustained flight.

The shots are a heavy crop but the details are there.

I am not sure of the etiquette on FM about posting images in someone else's thread so if anyone wants to see them they start here.

Absolutely fabulous series Alfred!

While they are powerful they can be intimidated by most any creature. Today I saw a sparrow chase an osprey out of itís own nest.

amazing series.

Having never seen one of these magnificent creatures in the wild I had no idea that they actually entered the water and then had to launch self and catch from zero.

wonderful

Thanks

I'd agree! When I saw my first Osprey smack down into the water, catch a fish, and then beat his wings to lift off... Amazing!

Great set!

Great action Alfred! Based on seeing lots of posts on FM, these guys/gals do seem to take a bigger than average (body size to prey size) payload relative to other raptors.
