Photographing Bald Eagles in flight can take a lot of practice. One of the classic shots when photographing Bald Eagles is a photo of an eagle diving for a fish with talons extended. The key on these shots is to watch your shutter speed. When the eagle dives below the horizon, the background will darken and your shutter speed will drop.
