Hi Rick,wow what a superb subject and well executed shot of the iconic American Bald Eagle.I need to get a 600mm lens as well because I see eagles often but they are just to skittish to allow me to get very close to them,that is unless they are very young.I find nothing in this image that I can fault with in anyway or truly critique as it is so good as is.A very fine time of season shot of this noble bird and thanks for giving us this view of it.I hope that you never quit getting out there in our natural world to photo and just plain take in the scene.Your photos are very well liked and even loved by thousands of people.

Hello my friend!
Awesome capture of this majestic Bald Eagle. Your lens does an excellent job bringing such sharp detail and true colours, or perhaps it's the guy who is behind the lens ; ) I love the way he's perched on the tree which is just about to leaf out. The side view shows off his powerful beak and huge feet. Love it!

What a marvelous shot! You and your 600mm lens have worked magic again. Super clear and colourful. Fantastic blurred BG with your f/4.0 setting. Very attractive and expressive composition. TFS.

I see you got another lens, it's doing some great work for you. The eagle shot is super with lots of detail and beautiful colors. Love the blurred BG. as it helps you to focus on the main subject. Well done!!

Seems to have similar colours to the African Fish Eagle.Exceptionally sharp image and striking clarity.Limited DOF has created a two layered image hence majestically emphasising the subject.Very cleverly composed leaving the open space, well done and TFS.

it is not easy to capture this bird. It is not easy to have it done so nicely. i like your composition very much. The positioning is simply perfect. I remember the poem by Tennyson, Eagle....
It depicts the poem.
Lovely view and exciting presentation.
