[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Bald Eagle, or Haliaeetus leucocephalus, was photographed at Lake Billy Chinook outside of Culver, Oregon. At the time of the shot, there were three eagles in the area. This area has several active nests during the mating season and at the time the photo was taken, the birds were gathering. A total of 21 eagles, which included both adult and juvenile Bald Eagles and several Golden Eagles.

On this day I was actually testing a new lens. I had received the Canon EF 75-300mm IS lens the day before and had not had the chance to give it a good workout. I learned a lot about shooting with the lens that day and made a lot of mistakes. I found out you don't pan with IS stabilized on with this lens. 8v) However, I was able to get several good photos...this one being about the best.

I do hope folks enjoy my first post to this site.
