Right 500 and 1.4 TC and Thank You MikoI often wonder how they maneuver through all those branches without crashing, but perhaps it's a telephoto look and not quite as dense as one would think? :biggrin:
They Come out of the trees to a lower swampy area and then head to the river.
Anyway, wonderful sequence, Gary. You did a nice job tracking through the trees and I like that pose too. I notice you shoot a 700mm - so would that be a 500 + 1.4 TC? Thanks
Glad you like it, the leaves are getting a little too much though.WOW WOW WOW
Thanks TOMiko, I've often wondered the same thing - such a large wingspan.
Very nice, Gary - I never tire of eagle photos, such a majestic bird.
Gary this is a nice series of what looks like the female and you got her very nice. I was wondering if you have a FF photo of these photos as it would be interesting to see just how much a bird this size drops when taking to flight even with a push off. I have a sequence that showed this to me and I can understand now how they get hit by cars and mostly by high speed trains when in the winter there are dead deer carcasses on the tracks. We try to keep them removed allong the Hudson River where Amtrack runs.
