White-tailed sea eagle hunting

The White-tailed sea eagle is Britain's largest bird of prey, with a wingspan of almost 2.5 metres. I captured this image from a boat just off the coast of Mull as the eagle swooped to take a fish. A shutter speed of 1/1,600th of a second has frozen the action whilst an aperture of F/8 gave sharpness from wing-tip to wing-tip. Accurate panning and focus tracking were essential to get the shot.

F/8, 1/1,600th second, ISO 800
Accepted: Hoylake 2019 - Honourable Mention
