While eagles are not that common in Southern Ontario, we do have the opportunity to see them from time to time. This article shares some images of an in-flight eagle captured with an Olympus OM-D E-M1X. I photographed the eagle as it flew over the ponds at Hendrie Valley in Burlington Ontario.

Unfortunately the in-flight eagle was a fair distance away. This resulted in the images being cropped somewhat aggressively. I was doing some field testing with Olympus camera gear at the time of these image captures.
We seldom have the chance to see these magnificent birds in our local area. It was a thrill to be able to capture this small selection of in-flight eagle images.
These photos of an in-flight eagle were created with two short AF-C bursts using a frame rate of 10 frames per second. The Olympus OM-D E-M1X was set to Manual mode, using Auto-ISO and Multi-Zone metering. A 5 X 5 auto focus point spread was utilized. The longest telephoto lens combination I had available at the time was an M.Zuiko 40-150 mm f/2.8 PRO zoom with an MC-14 teleconverter.
During my time at Hendrie Valley that day, the eagle only did one fly-by. The auto-focus on the Olympus OM-D E-M1X was fast and accurate, allowing me to capture these photographs.
All photographs were captured hand-held in available light using camera equipment as noted in the EXIF data. Images were produced from RAW files using my standard process.
