Can you guess what happens next? The action was a little bit too far away in the last part of the sequence - I had to crop the later pictures quite a bit. It was certainly an interesting thing to watch. Thanks for looking.

Tit for tat I guess because the fisherman is vulnerable. Quite the series and,of course,it needs to be a series. Individually (absent the power lines that can be cloned out), # 6 is the single most inspiring image to me - wonderful capture.

Bet the sound of camera shutters at that location was deafening with that action going on. I'm in Australia and have heard of that spot so it's got to be popular!

Pity that somebody has built those powerlines on that location.

And in some pictures I'm bit bothered by that grain pattern in dark parts...

Thank you for the response. I wanted to show Conowingo as visitors would see it - powerlines, eagles, towers. It's a great place to view bald eagles and other birds. I was testing a borrowed RX10m4. This is a phenomenal camera - it focuses quickly and tracks quite well. It performed so well that I never used my A77II and Tamron 150-600. There is something to be said with being able to handhold shots and track birds on the fly, without a tripod. That being said, you need your exposure to be pretty much spot on (or maybe slightly overexpose) to avoid the noise in darker areas (I was on manual exposure all the time). Still, the camera was easy enough to use that I didn't even bother reading the manual. Of course, this means that I didn't really do the camera and the place justice. Perhaps one day, when I have my own RX10m4, I will have the time and inclination to understand how to use the camera better. All I can say is wow - the RX10m4 is one heck of a camera. A boon for people into bird photography.

Maybe I'll clone out a few wires. Thanks again for the comments.

A Catch-22 situation. No power lines, no dam, no eagles.

I replaced #6 with a "dewired" version of the image.
