BRAVO !!!! What an amazing sequence . Hard to find the proper adjectives to describe this fantastic and seldom seen by most sequence. Must have been something to witness let alone capture.

Would be cool to have the opportunity to shoot such action. I get to watch sparrows chatter over nesting boxes. Nice set Herb.

3rd from the end with the eagle flying across the screen looks like a painting.
I also like the "moisture" from the eagle's beak in the next one.
The sequence action shots are terrific.
It must take a lot of practice to get these birds in the frame and in focus with the 800mm lens.
Thanks for sharing, Ken.

Some really outstanding images, Herb.
The whole chase sequence is remarkable- with a couple of individual pics that are particularly good.
#9 is the winner for me, though. It evokes the speed and look of a diving American Bald Eagle perfectly.

Thanks Kirk, oh the super hi iso is just for fun, When it's too dark and they're fishing in front of me, I just can't help myself.
