    I know!! This is the first time I am using this camera...a Canon PowerShot SX40 HS. I have a manual that I'm reading but obviously need help! This was shot from quite a distance, with no tripod and on auto. Let's just pretend its an impressionist photo of eagle's landing in water??? LOL I am surprised I even caught it. Now if I can just figure out the camera and it's manual setting........

    Set the auto to sports or set the lowest Aperture you have to f/2.7, ISO 400(if it is a bright day then ISO 200), 1/500 (if 1/500 is not enough then try 1/1000) - a tripod will help you get sharp photos. This might helps: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rS1NKymFUUs Ok, let's pretend Mrs. Degas of the photographic world.

    I think that fact that you are out there trying is what is important and we all started out the same way. Many of my photos from last year looked this same way. I just didn't know enough about taking photos of eagles.
