Eagle Pair

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Reggie, Dec 5, 2017.

  1. Eagle pair were active this morning. They have to be close to laying eggs. D850, Nikkor 200-500VR lens handheld. Incidentally, I finally have all the stuff needed to run the EN-EL18b battery and get the expensive, two extra frames per second. I filled the buffer this morning a couple times because I could hear the camera shutter actually slowing perceptively. Eagles-12-5-17-181PN. Eagles-12-5-17-240PN. Eagles-12-5-17-208PN. Eagles-12-5-17-229PN.
  2. Great shots. I brought my 80-400 by mistake last year - I hope I remember the 200-500 this year.

    I ordered my grip in September from B&H. It is still backordered. I hope to get it by the end of January.
  3. These are beauties! Nice shooting.
  4. Allan, I bought mine from B&H too and it was backordered forever, but I got it about one week ago, only to find out that I also needed a BL-5 battery chamber cover to hold the EN-EL18b battery, so if you don't have one, go ahead and order it, B&H has them in stock for under 25.00.
  5. Thank you Nick.
  6. Hey Mitch, thank you.
  7. Killer shots
  8. More from morning.

  9. Your eagle shots show some great detail, set off nicely against a clear blue sky. I agree these are killer shots
  10. Excellent images, love the detail.
  11. they all have the pop factor, awesome.
  12. These shots really show off your skill and the 200-500. The 200-500 against a blue sky looks like one of the exotic big boys. The price point is unbelievable
  13. Randy, I have a Nikkor 600/f4 and have had it out of the house just one time sine I bought the 200-500. I'm in awe of the lens and it's handhold able. Just can't practically use a TC on it.
  14. Killer shots Ron, superb detail and very nice action shots you've captured. Well done.

    Reggie, your skill set is superb! These images are breathtaking, especially the last one posted. I am on the cusp of buying the 200-500 VR lens after renting one this past weekend. I think your images sealed the deal! Now I have to hone my craft to equal your technique.
  17. Crystal clear, enjoyed looking at them.
