Full frame... Eagle chasing a mallard, flew by at eye level within 30 feet or so...I was amazed I even kept focus it flew so close..
I usually just delete cut off wing files, etc, but I liked the intense look.

An excellent close-in shot, Dan. The dark background really makes the eagle, and it’s intense look, stand out.

Brilliant close up Dan. Good action shot. Glad you chose to ignore the "rules'... and show us this image. What matters is does it have interest, and oh yes, it does.
Make your life spectacular!
