Some more eagle images for you today. I want to show you some of my mistakes and what can happen when you get busy visiting with other photographers and not paying attention. 🙂
I was watching some geese fly over the area and happened to notice all the lenses pointing over my head. I had the lens set on 400 mm and this is what I got. Not a very good composure but on the other hand you could call it up close and personal. 🙂
For this image I was busy visiting with my friend Burt and totally missed the catch of this juvenile. He does have a fish in his talons and you can still see the spray of the water. All I got was three frames of river water before I finally caught up to him.
This guy pivoted and was headed for a catch. I did a good job of following him down until all I could see in my view finder was brown blur. There were photographers leaning over the railing and I was getting the back of their insulated jackets. So I missed his catch as well.
Here is another miss. I caught up with him just after he had snagged his lunch. Probably visiting again. 🙂
There weren’t many juveniles at the lock when I was there. A couple flew over and I captured this image. For the most part the adults were having the most success on this day.
That’s it for today. I have lots more eagle images but I’ll give them a rest for a few days and see if I can find something else of interest. Truth be told however I could photograph eagles every day and I don’t think I would get tired of them.
Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
