I started noticing this raptor fishing at a pond that's near my home and after getting the MKII and a 300 mm lens, i started to stake out the pond. Takes time, but i guess it's worth the effort.

Hi Wei lim,
An awesome shot with such great details and DOF. The moment you captured here is very impressive. The OOF BG is lovely it brings out the outline of the bird perfectly.

P.S. Its no crime to give critique as well.

Hi Wei Lim. What a prize catch. Good timing in this shot. Nice sharpness on the bird & it's catch. Excellent job. Cheers - Adil.

amazing capture, no need for the white striped frame though, TFS Ori

Hello Wei,
Impressive photo in wonderful colours and a perfect timing. This White-bellied Sea Eagle is one of my favorite birds of prey. The contrasts against the dark BG are amazing. The prey is a big bonus. Fantastic POV, sharpness and composition.

amazing details and colours !
what a great shot!

Hello Wei.
Great capture of this bird in full flight!
The colours and details are excellent.
Fine sharpness and contrast also.

hello Wei

Very good timing to capture this moment. I like the high wings and bokeh. Nice sharpness. Good light to allow you the luxury of 1/1000s.

I also the fish may drop :)

tfs, bill
