Was fortunate enough to find this fella when I was out looking for Eagles in Central Florida. I was very excited since all of my previous sightings of GHO's were right at dusk and to dark for quality images. Hope you enjoy.

beautiful shot of a beautiful bird. I might be more impressed that you captured it with a 500 handheld, though ;)

Jason, this is simply wonderful. Very well done my dear man.

A very good shot, especially hand holding a 500mm combo.

Great shot of a beautiful bird in a very pretty setting! Handheld at 1/320 is pressing your luck, but you pulled it off! :)
