American Bald Eagle

Gary Detonnancourt

I photographed this family of bald eagles in Maine on a recent trip.  They were pretty far away so I don't have any stunning shots but still they are fun to look at.  Some were shot with the Canon 100-400 mm lens while others were shot with a GH4 and a Cannon 400 mm f/5.6 with a 2x teleconverter.
