This was my first trip to Conowingo. I got one decent days out of 2 1/2.
It was exciting to see these birds making and fighting for a living. C&C are welcome.

You are right. I was in Alaska more than once to shoot eagles. There I could make it happen throwing fish and shooting the eagles diving for it. Fun but not thrilling.
here in Conowingo, you will have to wait and wait and when you see it, react fast and don't miss it in you 800mm long lens.
Thrilling, you said it.

I wish the light was better and I was nearer when I shot the last picture. The fish was bigger and for sure heavier than the bird.

I wish the light was better for the last one. It was impressive to see the agle could fly with that load.
