Eagles on a sunny day

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Louis Champan, Jun 10, 2007.

  1. This past Friday was one of those days. I came into the office had a cup of coffee checked my emails, looked outside and saw sun for the first time in a few days, and made a quick command decision I was going to go looking for eagles rather than work.
    And I'm sure glad I did. The sun was out and so were the eagles, had a great time just cruising around spotting eagles in the trees. Here are a few of the shots I got.

    NIKON D2X    ---    700mm    f/6.3    1/800s    ISO 320

    NIKON D2X    ---    700mm    f/6.3    1/1250s    ISO 320

    I love them all but #'s 2 and/or 3 would be large prints for my wall. An eagle on an evergreen is hard to beat.

    Very good set Louie.
  16. Thanks Tim. I was a bit to close with the lens setup I had on so I clipped the wings, but hey better than not getting the shot.

  17. Thanks Frank.

  18. Thanks Gale. I sure enjoyed it I'll tell you that.

  19. Thanks Randy.

  20. Louie, you did indeed make the right decision. I sure wish I could have made it to. Nothing beats shooting in good light. I think Saturday showed that. Bill did great on the chicks, mine were too dark. Each of these shots is great. Love the eagle sitting on the very top of the tree.
