Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken in the Daytona Beach, Florida Area.
Time
I usually go to the eagle's nest in the morning. There is better light at that time there.
Lighting
This as you see was an action shoot and kind of unexpected. I just used the best iso and F stop for that time of day. The white head of the eagle will attract light to glare. And Florida has bright light for sure.
Equipment
This was hand held no tripod was used. Camera was a Canon 7D Mark II, the lens was the Canon 300mm 2.8 lens with a 2xIII extender.
Inspiration
This female left the next and started coming towards me at the edge of the pond. She was going after a fish but at the time I did not know what she was going to do. She missed the fish and turned her head to see where the fish was. That is when I took this picture. She flew to the other end of the pond and circled back towards me. She was coming back for that fish and she got it.
Editing
I used Topaz Detail and Denoise on this image.
In my camera bag
I do bird photography so the 300mm 2.8 with extender is always with me. I also have a Nikon D500 and 300mm 4.0 lens that I use.
Feedback
It's an action shot so you have to have your camera set accordingly so that there is no blurring of the wings. I usually have the shutter speed around 1500 to 2000 for that. Practice panning and moving the camera with the moving object.
