Still another fishing series. I did some closer crops of 2 of them, one to show the fish still in the water and the other to show what seems to be some damage on the left foot talons.  Not a lot of cropping on these otherwise as it happened very close to us.

A few more. He missed the first time and I missed the rest of the turn around and grab.

I am quite pleased with the Nikon service team. They probably only hear complaints when something is wrong but I'm gonna let them know all is well. My D500 is a good or maybe even slightly better than when new. Here are some Eagle shots from today. I took it and the D850. Haven't done those yet though, a quick peak says I'm gonna be happy with day. Between the 2 camera bodies I took over 1000 shots between 7:10 this  morning and 2:00 when I left. I also posted a few in the Birds thread.

I thought about not posting these because of the quality, but.... For those who know the area, this is between the two towers but on the back side so 800-900 feet? I followed them until they disappeared behind the island. My first shots of this behavior with talons locked. Yeah, very heavy crop
