Canon 1D III, EF 300 2.8L IS + 1.4x extender, f/5.6, 1/1000, ISO 250
The holiday week is a great time to get out and take some photos of things I normally do not have time to chase. The whole family headed out armed with cameras on Christmas day and we were pleasantly surprised as we saw more eagles or hawks than ever before. I will be heading back for more before long.

I used the 1D III whenever I anticipated that I needed the tracking. In the bottom photo the eagle was very far away and the image is cropped from the 5D II file at 21.1 mega pixels.
My interest in wildlife photography is without doubt sparked by spending too much time around a very talented wildlife photographer, Henrik Nilsson. Do yourself a favour and check out his galleries.
