Will post 5 shots

Well it was a really tough day on the Skagit river. We were fogged in most of the morning, it was 36 degrees and I was thinking that I was going to have to come back. It was total crap until 10:30 AM.

Then the magical moment occurred

Then the fog lifted and the eagles started to feed. Got super lucky and caught this male swooping in on a fish.

These are straight off the camera captures. Im Inclined to print #5 or #6

which one would you print ??

Enjoy. Im still excited about these

Tough choice. #2 is very nice, a “classic” pose. The last one is much more unusual so I would probably more inclined to print that one if I couldn’t print both.

Very nice work Mike. I'd pick 5. I like it a lot and it is different than most of what you see. I'd see what you can do to lessen the brightness of that diagonal tree in the background or maybe clone it away. You just can't beat the Skagit.

Here is the Pano that I made with the 2 favorite shots. I think I like them better as stand alone's but stitched these as many thought would make for a cool shot

The second one is my favorite and I agree that the stand-alones are better. The pano looks like two separate eagles.
