This American Eagle was flying past when he suddenly caught sight of a fish. It was like watching him putting on the brakes as he quickly and efficiently changed direction in mid flight. The American Eagle is a powerful bird of prey with extremely sharp eyesight which allows them to spot fish at distances of up to 1 mile or 1.6 kilometres.
I photographed this photo with the digital SLR camera model Canon EOS-1DS, aperture of f/7.1, exposure time of 1/1600 sec. on ISO 200, as always I used a original Canon Lens, the focus lenght for this picture was 285mm.
