    I went back over to the Eagles nest at lake Guntersville (in N Alabama). I got some decent flight shots withing the first 10 minutes, then had to wait 4 hours for another shot.

    Here are some samples. Taken with the D2H / 300mm 2.8. The flight shots were with the TC-20EII, while the late shots were with the 1.7 TC. The late shots were also taken at between ISO 1100 and 1400. There is some noise, but I was pleased with the results.

    Flight shots:



    Late, late afternoon:


    I have to look through the rest to see if there are any more.


  2. great Eagle shots, esp. the last two. Killer shots.
  3. Hi Frank,

    Guess what? I went on the field trip to the Wildlife Refuge today and no birds were there. It is still spring so I don't think there will be many until Summer. In fact, I don't think that this Refuge is a good as the Back Bay on my side of the water so if all goes well, I plan to go to Back Bay tomorrow to see what I can see.

    The tour guide seems to have been more interested in getting us down to the Chesapeake beach on this half mile trail instead of staying put in one place to see if something would come by. The tour guide wouldn't even let us go off on our own or stay behind. They had to be with us the whole time so I guess you could say that I was very disappointed in the whole trip.

    At least with Back Bay, they let you go on your own and don't babysit you like this Refuge did. Is this common?

    I want to leave with this comment on the Eagles and that is they are great shots!!!

    Super beautiful shots Flew. A good day.

    Sure wish I had had a bit more reach on mine. .. Oh well.

  5. Hi Gale

    Don't worry Gale, you do a nice job anyway without the reach.

  6. Super shots Frank! Can't believe they are at such high ISO...they look so clean! The last shot is beautiful...!

    That second last shot is just killah Frank, very good indeed. Like Janet, I find it hard to believe those last two were at such high ISO.
