The sun came out for a very brief time when I was at Conowingo dam last week. These two images may be my best shots of adult bald eagle carrying fish. Since many fo you have shown spectacular images of bald eagles here in this forum, please suggest ways for me to improve my shots of bald eagles including pp. Thank you in advance!

Both were taken with a 1DX, 500f4 ii, 1.4Xii mounted on a Gitzo tripod, 1/2500, f8, ISO 1600

My suggestion is that you keep doing what you are doing. Great photos.

that very kind of all of you. Keep doing what I love to do is an easy task, just need to find the time and put me in the right locations! I live in Southern California and finding bald eagles around here is tough. They do come for winter on the high country lakes, but approach is difficult and often requires me to shoot from a rocking boat. Thank you all.
