My wife saw five eagles pass by the bay windows as we were lounging Sunday afternoon. Got the rig and rain boots and checked it out. There were about fifteen eagles feeding off scraps thrown out by a salmon smokehouse a few doors down the shore from us. They were either too gorged or too anxious for more scraps to fly away from me. This is my fourth attempt at capturing eagles with the 80-400VR. I finally got some keepers. Of course, this time I was only about 20 yards away from them and they were very polite and posed for me for several minutes. I also tried to capture several in flight, but with no luck. As you can see, it was overcast and rainy. All with D200, 80-400VR, ISO 400, f/7.1, varying shutter speeds. C&C appreciated.
