Last Saturday I got me a new toy, a gently used Canon 5D Mark IV. This new camera is my highest resolution one yet, full frame, and has a top-notch autofocus system.
The day after picking it up, I went out to give it a test run and subject matter was lacking as I struggled to find the critters. However, this gorgeous eagle at St. Vrain State Park in northern Colorado gave enough of a show to give me a good feel of the performance of the camera.
Perched near the campgrounds, it launched, turned and flew right at me giving me a fantastic series of shots, including this one. The image is quite heavily cropped and yet still is very sharp. I’m impressed.
