One of the bird trainers was walking around with this Bald Eagle on his arm and let me snap a bunch of pictures up close and personal! Notice the 80mm focal length.
I actually wanted to get further back and include more of the bird but my back was to a fence and I still was this far zoomed in. Oh well, I think they came out great!
