Bald Eagles

Some eagles in a tree across the road from the tulip fields in Mount Vernon, WA


I'm disappointed with the softness of the Nikon 55-300mm lens. This is just my first test shot, but I'm shooting on a tripod at the optimal aperture of 9.0 zoomed in all the way. I would have thought 1/1000th of a second would be enough to freeze the action but all my pics turned out soft.


Does anyone who has experience with this lens have any tips to share??
