Congratulations to louie champan for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 18 votes - View Previous Winners


You wait a long time and hope or wish someday that the eagle youíve been watching over the past few months will provide you with some special moments, earlier this week I just happened to be at the right place at the right time.
I knew that there were a couple of eagles off to my left far up in a fir tree but didnít think much about it since they hadnít moved for the past hour. I wasnít paying much attention to them and turned my attention to shooting some incoming Wood Ducks and a GBH that was hunting off to my right. And before I knew it coming straight at me low over the water came this adult eagle with a fish in its talons. It was about 100 yards out and headed for a perch where it landed and consumed its catch. After finishing its feeding, it flew down and landed on a half-submerged log where again it provided some nice opportunities to get a few more shots.

Awesome stuff, Louie. You've certainly put in the hours. And in this case you nailed it when the opportunity presented itself. The whole set is great but that first one ticks all the boxes for me. Great work.

Louie these are really nice. Iíd say with the eagles and owls lately you are on a real roll.If I were you Iíd run out and pickup a lottery ticket the way your luck is going. Nice shooting.
