Persistance pays off no doubt Callie.
Be proud, be thankful, you have a wonderful shot. He is a beautiful specimen. Great work and thanks for the very interesting story about how you got the shot. I envy your very professional skills. I suppose the harder you practise, the better it gets.

This is a great flight-in Callie.
Panning with Big Bertha! I take my hat off.;-)
Very good composition , I like the diagonal , very good details and colours, and a great note too.
Excellent work my friend.
Very nice capture, Callie. There is nothing more spectacular than a large graceful raptor in flight. I would be interested to know what shutter speed you used at f/8. Thanks.

With such lively note, you really make us participate to this shot, and it's a great one, again. Fully stretched, wings and paws, in the effort of taking off is taken just the right moment. Beautiful shot, Callie, well framed and sharp despite the distance and the difficulty to get everything right on the spot.
The art of waiting and patience. This is my favorite thing to do, waiting for the momment. Callie, I enjoy viewing pics like this. The angle taken is like my duck. Corner to corner. 600mm at F4 impressive. Fast lens.
Well done on the shoot. Hope to see more like this.

600mm that's impresive, great shot a rare one.

What a detailed and interesting history, Callie! On an image also interesting and detailed!
This passion which animates you is contagious and stimulates me.
A great post, not only by the image and by the note, but also by the spirit behind them.

Simple put this is a good capture and looks good too.
the note I found intresting and shows how time consuming getting even a passable shot onto the card/film, and to get a superb one well that is the icing on the cake.
Keep them coming Callie.

Long note indeed Callie, but it had me enthralled, for a moment I was there with you. I also wish to catch a great picture, on the wing.
Back to the picture, great shot, great note, well done.

You've done a fine job in capturing this guy in flight, a very difficult thing to do, even with your skill.

This is just great Callie. Your note is also very interesting. Good to know that patience pays off. The entire shadow of the bird, the layers of color in the BG are fantastic. Please post more of this magnificent bird.

Someone once told me that the best zoom is ones feet :) This will save you a lot of money and put a smile on Pieta's face.
Like I mentioned before I absolutely love this shot! The composition is great and so is the sharpness.
My problem with waiting this long is that I fall asleep behind the lens - It has happened before and when I wake up, there are all different animals in front of the lens :)

Your note made me think about something: we really share the same hobby but in a very different way. It is very meritorial the pacience you all have when photographing birds or mammals, always waiting for the "shot", that is definately not for me, sure. I enjoy moving around and find something interesting where most people would only see a weird fungus, or a disgusting insect. I think your job is much more difficult, and I appreciate it. Thanks.

Wat id moeilijk om deze foto temaken Callie, een vliegende roofvogel fotograferen en juist met de vleugels in de grootste spreidstand, ongelooflijk mooi, grote fotograaf Callie, my compliments!
I see this photo for the first time (it was shown on the TN homepage today) and I love it! :) Composition and details: 10 points. Really well done, too bad I can only give you 2.
