Today I had a blast shooting eagles down in Auke Bay. I went out with my friend Steve Quinn who had gone previously with the local photo club. We arrived at the dock around 9am, but the light didn't get good until about 9.30am. I was shooting with a canon 7d and a 70-200 f/2.8. I often forget to underexpose bald eagles by at least a stop to prevent blowing out their white head feathers, so the first couple of shots I had to toss. I like to shoot action like this in AV mode and just worry about keeping my shutter speed above 1/1000 and ISO anywhere from 100-400. I had not noticed until today how much stopping down my 70-200 helps with sharp focus on moving subjects, most of these were shot at f/2.8 or f/5.
