Photo of the Month - Eagle Feast

Photo of the Month

This image was taken by Peter Korkosz on March 21, 2015 in Port Charlotte, FL. It won a Blue Ribbon in the recent 2015 FCCC 2nd Triannual Digital Competition - Class A Color.

It was taken with a Nikon D80, with a Nikkor 70-300 f/4.5 mm lens set at a focal length of 300mm. The camera settings were 1/180 sec. at f/11 with ISO 400, -2 E.V.

There were at least 10 photographers and birders present that day at the nest, and we were all chatting and not paying attention as the male swooped into the nest with the fish. As the eagles were preparing to dine, I was not happy with the angle and walked way down the street and into the brush to just catch this view between the leaves. It was a bright sunny afternoon which made for a challenging exposure. I used Photoshop and Topaz Labs filters to complete the tweaking.
