Default Eagles...darn neared pee'd my pants! (now that should grab ya!)

My dad has been ice fishing lately and has gotten some very nice eagle pictures so I decided it was about time I tagged along. I can't believe the eagle just landed right there in front of me for the chum (sucker belly for trout fishing) I had left in hopes they would be by.
Used my 40D, and 70-200mm 2.8 IS USM lens.
I am REALLY excited about these and its the first time shooting eagles, so hoping they are ok! Would have loved to go back today but mom and the family kiboshed that idea seeing as it is easter! lol! The ice shack comes down this weekend as the ice is starting to finally melt, so these will have to do for me until next year! Driving across the lake to the shack this time of year scares me silly!

Fabulous shots Lisa. I love the last one that shows the snow on the talons. I've been missing the eagle photos since it has been a while since Ioway has posted. Awesome shots!

Awesome! I really like the second one. Thanks for sharing. Looks like a great fishing trip. Did you also get some good portraits of your Father?
