A patient took me to where there is an Eagles nest. There are two adults and one baby. It was about 200yds away, and I would have got closer, but it is on the border of a mobile home park which is building new homes and by law they have to have an environmentalist there. He asked that I not get too close so as not to change their behavior. I did the best I could. These are shot at 400iso as it was overcast (of course), on a monopod with the 300 f4 and 1.4x. I plan to go back again when there is light. I hear they often just go out of the nest and soar around. They did some hunting and nest building while I was there, but one adult always stayed behind.

I can hide behind the brush to not bother them. We'll see.
