p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Mexican and American Eagles (6)


The beautiful and regal Crested Caracara is sometimes referred as a Mexican Eagle. This bird gave me another shooting opportunity a few days ago while in Orlando, Fl. Driving to Viera Wet, my favorite place when I'm in that area, takes only one hour from Orlando and I was hoping for another opportunity to get some pics of a Caracara in flight.
The American Eagle is not very common in Viera, but this one landed on top of a dead tree close where I was shooting.
The Juvenile Eagle was taken a couple of days ago here, at Pensacola Beach. A rare sight, as it flew right over my head.
The Caracara was shot with a 7D paired with the 400mm/5.6, the Eagles were shot with the MkIV and the 400mm/5.6, except the last one taken with the 7D and the 500mm+ 1.4xTC.
C&C welcome.

Wow! Those are three shots that scream Cara Cara Cara! Beautiful skies to compliment perfect focus and exposure on these beautiful birds. Love them all....and wish they were mine! And the eagles are really superb as well.

These are fantastic, Socrate!
#1 and #2: great control of exposure (where have I heard that before), wonderful detail, and, best of all, artistic composition in which the lateral axis of the bird beautifully complements the frame.

#3: a magnificent bird and my favorite of the set

#4, #6: just another bald eagle

#5: love that view, which shows the amazing symmetry of the white markings

Lovely captures Socrate. I find the first image really stands out from others. All the elements even the sky is very pleasing in that shot.

Well done, Socrate. You sure have a fine set on that Caracara. I also really loved that sky in the background of those shots.

Great job on these Socrate. Eagles are good , the Caracara are better, IMO. Great skies.

Excellent images. Excellent exposure and sharpness. I think # 2 and 3 are my favorites, but they're all very nice.

Just plain beautiful Socrate. The Mexican Eagle IF is one of the best I have ever seen, we usually see these guys perched. It's a refreshing change to see one flying around AND as well executed as these are. The BE's are just as good, the perched is my pick of them, great look on his face
