It's always fun watching an eagle cruising along, and then spying his next meal in the water below him. They usually make a hard turn as they apply the air brakes, and then come in to make their grab. This young guy had it down pat.
1. Target acquired

3. It was a very windy day - course correction required

Excellent series.

Thanks Peter!

The gulls were busy too with smaller fish; I think the smelt are still in the bay, which no doubt are attracting the larger ones. The eagles were watching this activity verrrrry closely. There were also a lot of seals enjoying the fun.

Thanks a lot Red. No, it was a bright day as you can see from the bright blue sky, but when he transitioned down lower on approach and I had the riverbank as the background, it did get darker. I use all manual settings except Auto ISO and it does a good job of adjusting.
