Thanks! The eagle was in captivity, she is a rescued raptor, in the shot you can see her wings aren't exactly even. When I saw her, she was being handled outside her cage and fed a freshly killed prairie dog. They let me get about 10ft away from her. I took all of the shots with my D70, and the eagle shot was: 1/400s at f5.0 using my 70-300mm VR lens at 165mm.

definitely would have been tough to crop in like that in a natural setting with the 70-300 but it looks like it was the perfect lens for the job. good exposure and nice and sharp. really like it. all my eagle shots have been natural and the bird hasn't been far off (in a tree under our boat several times) but I've always been caught with the wrong gear (wide-short tele zooms and a converter in a rocking boat, gear that works best for paddling, not wildlife) while paddling. the results are heavily post scan crops and not so sharp.

fresh prairie dog...yummie!!!
