Tawny Eagle

By phil_j  
Many thanks to everybody that left a message or click on my last upload of our Red Setter, Ishra.
As always they were very much appreciated.

As I mentioned yesterday, I will return to the birds for this evening, and another shot taken at the Hawk Conservancy Trust, Andover last weekend.

This is Frodo, a Tawny Eagle, being displayed at the grounds.
The light wasn't the best when this was taken so I had to put the Iso up to get a decent shutter speed, although I wanted to still get the feeling of movement by having a little bit of blur the the wings.
Pleased to get the eye and beak in good focus.

Hope you like this shot.

Have a good weekend, don't forget that the clocks change this weekend in the UK everybody!!.
