p.1 #1 · Bald Eagle Fish Chase


Here 's a sequence of 17 shots I have from last year, taken just prior to Super storm Sandy's arrival. I posted 8 shots previously, here's 17 out of the original 24 shot burst. I cropped a few square to eliminate more of the distracting background. The fish landed back into the pond.

These are a delight to view Herb and seeing how much noise is in your wonderful images makes me feel a little less equipment limited.

Wonderful action set, Herb. Look like the fish was dropped on purpose. So did the other eagle catch the fish? It must be a thrill to capture this fight.

These are amazing captures - really well done.

I do have to ask though - why is the noise so apparent at ISO 3200 given that camera body? I would have thought that body would produce much less noise at 3200...

I'm glad my noisy post makes you feel better about your equipment Morris. That said, I do prefer getting the shots, albeit noisy ones, then not getting any shots at all. The 1d mark IV is a 4 year old body and it is noisy at 3200 iso, unlike all of the newer full frame bodies. I still prefer to get the shots than just watch the action. Thanks for the comments.

I do remember this action as i was standing there watching lol No i did get the shots but with a 300 mm lens and the birds looked like ants in the frame lol.Now if i remember right no one got the fish,it dropped to the river and they had to start all over again---- I love when that happens
