Bald Eagle Nanaimo River, Jan 29, 2005
D2h 500/4 +1.4x, 1/400s f/5.6, ISO 400, about a 10% crop from all sides, neat image for noise but no other changes.

I am adopting the fisherman approach to photographing birds more and more - wait and they will come. In this case, I was set up on the bank of the Nanaimo River, hidden behind Douglas Fir branches, waiting for Mergansers to float down the river (which they did), when this fellow came gliding up the river. I actually captured a series, all in focus, but some of the others are suffering from the pbase red x of death right now.

I'll see your bird, and raise you a couple....

including the rare 4-winged Trumpeter Swan in the middle.

Flying D

St. George is called Utah's Dixie and a large lighted D was erected on the side of a hill above the city. By using my zoom during a 3 second night time exposure the D literally flies. This image was taken with my D2H and 70-200mm VR lens on February 3, 2005.

Re: Disqualification

Thanks Boobie Joe. I understand. I just wanted to get an entry in. It is not the best background...but these birds move very fast and I thought folks might enjoy the photo itself.

As a request for us working stiffs... could you end the next contest, say at the end of the day on Sunday and make it 12PM West Coast instead of East Coast time?

And thanks for the trouble to set it up, too. I believe friendly contests are fun to help us grow. (And can my vote still count?)

Regards,
