All of the eagles were in a feeding frenzy a few days prior to Sandy's arrival. The flying fish was never caught and it may have swam away after a 100+ foot high dive. I captured 20+ in the original sequence with very little light, iso 3200, here's eight frames from that burst. Plus a bonus Holy Grail shot at 51,200 iso.

Herb, your photos are amazing, the one with 51,200 ISO is not bad for that high number.
One question, did the Bald Eagle catch the fish in the air?

Hi Herb,

The opening sequence is wonderful! You could leave the second out as it has a structure as the background and have and even more impressive set. I love the fall colors in 10.
