BALD EAGLE, LAKE SUPERIOR ZOO, DULUTH, MINNESOTA, JUNE 18, 2012
SMC Pentax-DA 55-300 at 300mm
1/750 sec. f5.8
Getting a good closeup portrait of an eagle in the wild is a tough proposition, unless you've got either a 1,000-mm. telephoto or the patience of Job and the stalking skills of an Iroquois. Having none of those, I got this one shooting through wire mesh at an outdoor aviary at the zoo in Duluth. The result seems OK to me.
