Nature clicks #82 - Another good day for Bald Eagles

Bald Eagle
Nikon D300s, Sigma 50-500mm / f4.5-6.3 APO DG HSM

It was another wonderful day at the Mississippi River today. The temperatures were not nearly as low as yesterday and that made the shooting even more fun. The Bald Eagles hunted for the fish again and we had many opportunities to fill our memory cards. I focused today on handholding the camera with the long lens. Of course not the whole time, there is a reason that the Sigma 50-500 is called the "BIGMA"… ;-) I had more keepers than yesterday but have still too many pics out of focus. I really like to know how the other guys with their faster f/2.8 or f/4 lenses perform. I will probably post a few more pictures in the next days, so please stay tuned and have a great week!
