Nice photo. Do you know approximately how far away you were?

It was about 100 feet maybe with the eagle was approx 30 feet up in the tree.

Gorgeous birds, we have them in our garden too.

Your image is a joy to see, not just because of the colours , but because of the composition.

Hi All..

As u can see my profile.. iam totally new to both Photography and Forum. But got Gears alot to practice n have fun.

Recent addition is this lens. But looking at photos here I was like WOW. I recieved a copy today from amazon and iam not getting sharp pics like here. I know iam new but not so new to focusing well which I did not find while taking.

How should I know if sharpness n focusing issue is there ?? Some pointing a sigma dock. I have never use it b4 for any lens. Should I have to buy it too? Canon 7dm2 has microadjust too.can some point me the settings for it if my lens has issues .?

Many Thanks.
