White-tailed sea eagle in flight

With a wing span exceeding 2 metres, white-tailed sea eagles are Britain's largest bird of prey. Once extinct in the British Isles, they have been reintroduced to the Western Isles of Scotland. I made this photograph from a boat off the coast of Skye. The eagle swooped to seize a fish thrown into the water, enabling me to track it using predictive auofocus and a shutter speed of 1/1,250th second. F/8 has given sharpness from wing-tip to wing-tip.

F/8, 1/1,250th second, ISO 320
