Hi you'll, It was a rough day. I went out to the wetlands. As I was leaving I told Linda that I was getting worried because the eagles hadn't returned yet and were overdue. I said it would be nice to get a good eagle shot. Well the day was lousy, grey and overcast. I spent 3 hours in the wetlands and no eagle. I decided to go to Starbucks for a quick cup. As I was driving down the road there was this bald eagle sitting on a power pole. I passed up the shot. I mean a bald eagle on a power pole is like pineapple on pizza. On the way back there was that shameless eagle still sitting on the power pole so I decided an eagle on a power pole is better than no eagle at all. So I snapped a few shots. I was on the side of the road with traffic whizzing by so I couldn't set up my tripod and these shots were handheld. got to the wetlands and as I was entering I saw an osprey sitting on THE TREE. I headed on over there and I saw that the osprey was actually a bald eagle. When I got even closer I saw that there was actually two bald eagles in the tree with one on the lower branch. Be still my foolish heart two, not one but two bald eagles on THE TREE. Now I had to switch from my 500 to my 80-400 to be able to get both bald eagles in the shot. Naturally as I was in mid lens change one of the eagles took off. No two eagle in THE TREE shot. I don't get no breaks first a power pole now only one eagle. Broken in spirit I snapped off these shots hand held I then started to set up my tripod and of course the eagle took off before I could finish. I don't get no breaks. Finally these were all taken with my D100 because my D2h is back with Nikon again because its not metering properly again.
