We apologize that these photos are not the usual quality. However, the subject matter seemed interesting enough to include them anyway. These eagles were well over 1/2 mile away and moving through the sky a lot - and quickly! We hope you will find them interesting even though they are not as sharp as we would like them to be. Eagles do not mate in the air - the talon locking is part of the mating ritual and can also be ritualized battle. These shots were taken with a Canon EOS 20D using a Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 lens and Tokina 2X Teleplus Pro 300 teleconverter - the effective equivalent of 960mm lens on a 35mm camera at f10 at 1/800 second using ISO 200 film equivalent - and handheld to follow the action.
