I recently spent 3 weeks in Alaska. While there I booked a sight seeing boat and took a tour of Resurrection bay and Kenai Fjords National Park. There is a lot of wildlife to be seen in the area. I was very please with the sharpness of this one showing a bald eagle. Using the long lens from a moving boat is a challenge, to say the least.
I have many more pics, but I though this one would be a good opener. As alway, thanks for your thoughtful critiques.

great catch under the conditions. Like you say, either one would make it tougher - long lens OR moving boat, but you did a fine job of it. Well composed with the eagle in a great spot and I love the contrast against the darker background and I like whatever that foliage is beneath him.Really nice shot! Kindest regards,
